Double dissociation of spatial and object visual memory: evidence from selective interference in intact human subjects.

Author information

Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge 02139.


A functional dissociation of the spatial and object visual systems was produced by selective interference in intact young adults. Subjects were instructed to remember the location of a dot in a spatial memory test, and the form of an object memory test. As predicted by current notions of dissociable visual systems in the primate, spatial memory was selectively impaired by a movement discrimination spatial task, whereas object memory was selectively impaired by a color discrimination object task.
