In the blink of an eye: Short-term visual memory article named “Year’s Best Paper”

Psychology doctoral students’ paper honored by Psychonomic Bulletin and Review

Jane Jacob

Do you remember the color of the car you parked next to yesterday morning?

Maybe not now, but for an instant you took note of that car.

This type of brief memory is called a short-term visual memory. Once your brain has determined that information is no longer necessary to store, it is gone.

A psychology graduate student is being recognized for her comprehensive analysis of how short-term visual memories are created and discarded.

Earlier this year, CLASS doctoral candidate Jane Jacob authored an article about the stages of visual short-term memories for the Psychonomic Bulletin & Review. Her article, “Tracking the first two seconds: Three stages of visual information processing?” was named “Article of the Year” by the publication, a rare recognition for a student.

Psychonomic Bulletin & Review is considered to be the ‘flagship’ journal of the Psychonomic Society,” said Dr. Cathleen Moore, editor of Psychonomic Bulletin & Review. “Of the six Psychonomic Society journals, PBR is our general-readership journal. The work, therefore, has to appeal to a broader audience in its significance and its success of communication.”

Dr. Moore estimates that Jacob’s article was selected from approximately 100 articles the journal published throughout the year. Jacob’s article was based on work from her Master’s thesis about the stages of visual short-term memory.

“Visual short-term memory is traditionally thought of being composed of two different types of memory registers,” said Ms. Jacob. “The first is a very brief sensory memory, lasting 100-150 milliseconds after stimulus presentation and is able to hold a lot of visibly available items. The second, a more robust memory known as visual working memory, can only retain a few items but its duration is on the order of several seconds.”

However, while working with Melissa Treviño, the article’s co-author, and Dr. Bruno G. Breitmeyer, director of the UH Visual Cognition Lab, Ms. Jacob examined not just the traditional two stages, but also the transition stage that occurs when information is being transferred from the brief sensory memory into the visual working memory. Jacob says she and her co-authors were the first to comprehensively examine all three stages of memories.

“The significance of this third stage is that it a) transforms the sensory information held in iconic memory into a more abstract, schematic representation and b) transfers that representation to visual working memory,” said Dr. Breitmeyer.

“I don't think anyone has looked at these types of memory in the exhaustive manner in which we did,” said Ms. Jacob. “Our findings relate to other types of visual phenomena, and contribute to better understanding of post-stimulus processing (what happens after we see something).”

She’s worked in Dr. Breitmeyer’s lab for four years and during that time has advanced from the position of graduate research assistant to the current position of lab research coordinator, scheduling ongoing and helping to plan future research projects and providing mentoring to undergraduate research assistants.

“Throughout that time, she proved to be a hardworking, reliable and competent member of my research team,” Dr. Breitmeyer said.

In November, Ms. Jacob will travel to Toronto to attend the Psychonomic Society’s annual meeting and receive her award. One month later, she will graduate with a Ph.D. in Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience.

“In the future I want to continue learning more about my field through research, and impart my knowledge to others,” said Ms. Jacob. “I would like to continue in academia and teach in a liberal-arts university/college setting, but I’m also interested in exploring the industry side, and working as a vision or human factors scientist.”

How to succeed in college – psychology professor offers evidence-based study tips

Donald Foss suggests life balance and study techniques for productive college experience

Dr. Donald Foss

Deadlines. Demands. Stresses.

All can seep into the college experience prompting students to lose focus.

Psychology Professor Donald Foss, author of Your Complete Guide to College Success: How to Study Smart, Meet Your Goals, and Enjoy Campus Life, offers advice and helpful tips to ensure an academically successful college experience.

What Time Is It? 
Distinguish between class time, study time and your time.  Managing time means managing yourself.  Make a calendar and put all your obligations on it, including the time needed to prepare for tests, research term papers, outside work hours, and social events.  You’ll immediately get some time urgency.  That’s good.

“Studying” Isn’t the Best Way to Study
Simply reading, re-reading and highlighting doesn’t lead to effective learning. Active learning techniques are better: strategically read your text, write a summary, and honestly check your work.  Frequent (daily), honest self-assessment is a key to success.

What’s the Point?
Don’t just take notes; take good ones.  Listen for the “take home messages” of the lesson and the top three or four supporting points, and write them down.  Study the notes by asking yourself questions about them and, again, honestly assess whether you can answer them.  Don’t fool yourself; be sure you can re-state the key points.

The Brain-Wide Web
Reading a text from beginning to end is not the most effective way to read. Sink your brain power into it by being a goal-oriented reader. Preview the text, attend to the bolded words and items, and the summary.  Ask yourself what the chapter is about and then read to answer those questions. 

Stuff Happens
When things go wrong (and they will) find constructive coping techniques. Venting your frustrations is of no benefit to you.  Instead, learn to analyze the sources of your challenges and to deal with them effectively.  

Your Major and Your Career Start Now
During your first semester take advantage of services on campus that can help you select a major or get your first job. Counselors and Career Service Centers can’t help you much if you show up just before graduation.

“Some students may feel like much of college is about fun and freedom, but most are serious and concerned about their future.  Their goal, though they may not express it that way, is to become mature adults,” Foss said.   He teaches graduate and undergraduate psychology courses and has research interests in cognitive psychology.  He has published numerous articles and book chapters, as well as co-written or co-edited seven books.

Political Science students receive scholarships to pursue academic goals

Richard Murray Endowed Scholarship rewards public service and academic commitment

Sarah Aimadeddine

Miriah Soliz

Three University of Houston political science students are awarded scholarships established for a UH professor whose name is synonymous with the area of study.

The Richard Murray Endowed Scholarship was created in 2008 to honor Murray’s more than 40 years of teaching and research at the University, and is presented to political science undergraduates who demonstrate a strong academic commitment to the field and to public service.

This year Sarah Aimadeddine, Mathew Mendoza and Miriah Soliz receive the scholarships, which provide $1,250 for each student.

Aimadeddine, a senior, former UH Civic Houston intern for Congressman John Culberson, UH Hobby Fellow for Rep. Jim Murphy, and frequent volunteer for political campaigns, has a long-term goal of working on national economic policy.

“This scholarship will help finance my education at UH and allow me to be one step closer to my dreams,” she said.

Mendoza, a junior, is a frequent volunteer with many community organizations, including the United Way and Methodist Hospital. With a minor in Values, Law, and Policy & National Security Studies, he hopes to become a defense attorney.

“I look forward to continuing my pursuit for academic excellence in my immediate goals of graduating from this great university, and then attending law school,” he said.

Soliz, a senior, also has plans to attend law school with a goal creating a nonprofit organization to counsel and help women and children from abusive households.

“This scholarship means more than money to me,” she said. “This scholarship means you’re giving me a chance to succeed and that you believe in what I am doing.”

Richard Murray was instrumental in the establishment of the UH Center for Public Policy in 1981 and its polling operations.  He also served as its director from 1996-2006.  In addition to the Center’s polling operations now found within the Survey Research Institute, Murray initiated a part-time government internship program in 1996, which is now run as the Civic Houston Internship Program (CHIP).  Murray is a nationally sought-after commentator on all aspects of local, state and national politics.

Summer education experiences enhance CLASS students’ college careers

Three student essays about how what they did this summer impacted their career options

Even when not enrolled in on-campus courses, CLASS students engage in activities that enhance their educations and expand their career options.

From traveling overseas to take study abroad courses to doing research on campus with top professors, well-planned summertime experiences benefit students in every academic discipline.

Three CLASS students wrote essays about their own summer 2013 experiences.

Prepared to excel: Summer field training changes a student cadet

Air Force ROTC Cadet Carisma Gutierrez learns to lead and task risk

Carisma Gutierrez

Field training prepares cadets physically, emotionally, and mentally for the military world. It’s similar to “boot camp,” but different in a very significant way. Instead of being eight weeks long as boot camp is, field training is crammed into 28 days.

As a cadet in the Air Force Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC), I was expecting an intense physical work out, being pushed to the limit, and being forced out of my comfort zone. Field training exceeded my expectations.

Every day, I had to be prepared to lead. When I wasn’t, I received a rude awakening from the Cadet Training Assistant or Flight Training Officer at Maxwell Air Force Base in Montgomery, Ala.

Part of the problem was that I had physically prepared myself for field training, but not mentally.

I left for field training scared to fail. I was afraid to make mistakes and I was afraid to take risks. I prepared myself to not fail, instead of preparing myself to excel.

The very first week of field training was horrible because I still carried the same mentality. During the second week of field training, my performance was worse.

I hated field training more each day because I didn’t know my purpose or reason to be a future Air Force officer. I was so distraught that I considered dropping out of the training.

However, before I made a final decision, I gave myself a couple more days. In those few days, I was given the opportunity to lead. I approached this task as “my last chance to shine.” I had only a short amount of time to plan and even less time to execute. When the task was completed, I took a deep breath and waited to receive my performance score.

Carisma Gutierrez - group picture

When a cadet is given a leadership position or a task to lead, the cadet’s performance is graded with one of five ratings – outstanding, excellent, satisfactory, marginal, and unsatisfactory.

My leadership performance was rated OUTSTANDING.

My confidence renewed, I completed my training. Through that experience I came to realize that you must believe in yourself, believe in everything you do, and approach every challenge as if it’s your last opportunity to shine. If you do those three things, when the challenge is completed, you will have proven to yourself and to others that anything is possible and all can be accomplished.

As a result, I can say that I am proud and ready to become one of the world’s best Air Force officers.

Drums of Ghana: Spiritual awakening brings deeper meaning to student’s studies

Summer 2013 study abroad experience is transformative for junior Da’vonte Lyons

Da'vonte Lyons

On July 18, 2013, I traveled to Ghana in West Africa as part of a field study course in the African American Studies Program. This two-week study abroad experience allowed me to connect personal experiences to three years of research on African culture and tradition at the University of Houston.

I’m majoring in Graphic Communication and minoring in African American studies. After I receive a BA in Graphic Communications, I will pursue a master’s and doctorate degree in African American studies. In my graduate studies, I will combine my artistic and graphic design skills to bring a visual aspect to my ethnic studies research.

While in Ghana, I visited Akosombo, Kumasi, Cape Coast, and the capital city of Accra. In all of these regions, I was able to see various aspects of African tradition, ethics, and philosophies. With that said, the highlight of my experience took place in Cape Coast.

During my two days in Cape Coast, I participated in the Panafest and Emancipation Day reverential ceremony and candlelight vigil at the Cape Coast Castle. During the ceremony, various rituals were performed in honor of the ancestors and Ghana’s independence.

The most captivating part of the experience was the playing of the drums. During the opening portion of the ceremony the drums were played at a heavy rhythm. As I listened to the rhythm, I felt its vibrations as its energy traveled through the concrete pavement, up my legs, and through the rest of my body.

During this moment, I could feel my mind open and thoughts flowed in ways that I never experienced. The rhythm had touched my soul deeply. In relation, there was also a spiritual connection with the other African people who attended the ceremony.

Later in the ceremony, there was a spoken word and testimony period where reverence was given to the creator and the ancestors through the performance of rituals and the singing of songs. For me, this experience awakened my spirit and conscious and gave me a deeper understanding of my cultural homeland, African spirituality and ritual tradition.

While in Ghana I was able to experience what I read in books, heard in lectures, and watched in documentaries. My travels added meaning to my understanding of the African culture and added substance to my research.

Paying attention: Research makes texts come alive for psychology major

J. Alex Fisher one of several CLASS students participating in the 2013 Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) Program

Alex Fisher

This summer I have been honing my research skills and learning about various fields within cognitive development as part of the Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) program. I learned the steps involved in designing an experiment, properly working with human participants, and synthesizing previous literature on the research topic.

By the end of the summer, I learned a lot about research trial and error, and, especially, that the design of a research project needs frequent tweaking before it is satisfactory.

The study I am working on asks if the attentional biases that are advantageous for learning nouns impede the learning of adjectives. Attentional bias occurs when a correlation is made based on limited information or incomplete analysis.

One of my roles was to recruit research participants via a sign-up sheet, and word of mouth and other methods, schedule and run them through the experiment. Throughout the summer, the ways in which I run participants has been altered slightly to produce the most accurate data possible.

I learned a lot about language development from the articles I read and the graduate students with whom I worked. For example, children know that a new word does not name something that already has a name – a concept known as mutual exclusivity. Children also give names to solid objects based on the shape of the object, which is called shape bias. Gaining an understanding of the basic mechanisms of language development in early childhood helped me to understand why the research being conducted over the summer is important.

Since children exhibit the shape bias when nouns comprise a large portion of their early vocabulary, they learn nouns more rapidly than other parts of speech. The way nouns are learned is through attention. In early world learning, children selectively pay attention to perceptual and linguistic cues and characteristics to learn the names of objects. Acquiring adjectives is more difficult and occurs after nouns are acquired. The research I worked on this summer was focused on adjective attention.

Specifically, the study aims to see if children exhibit an attentional preference when learning shape, texture, and color. The design of the study required five novel textures, colors, and shapes. This summer, I was norming the stimuli that are going to be used. The shapes have been normed, and the five that are least familiar, and most neutral in complexity will be used in the study. By finding the least familiar and most neutral in complexity, it will be easier for the children to see the shapes, textures, and colors as novel (least familiar) and learnable (medium complexity, since research shows that too complex is difficult to learn and too simple can lose a child’s attention).

Having invested so much time into research this summer, I will now look at the studies I learn about in my classes with a more critical perspective. The research skills I have gained are valuable to any field in psychology, and will make me a better researcher when I attend graduate school in the future.

Student Spotlight: Shunte Lofton, School of Theatre & Dance

Junior acting major one of only two undergraduates in 2013 Houston Shakespeare Festival cast

Shunte Lofton

The science and research programs at University of Houston lured Shunte Lofton to enroll here as a freshman. Her plan was to earn a degree in biology and pursue a career in the medical field.

To lighten her heavy science course load, she enrolled in a beginning acting class for non-majors in the School of Theatre & Dance – and fell back in love with acting.

“I saw all of the theatre productions and I realized how great the program was and how much I missed acting,” she said. “I first became interested in theatre when I was in the fourth grade, but did not do anything theatre related until I was in the sixth grade. I was too shy to sign up for any classes at the community theatre or to go to the auditions. Finally my mother forced me to go and I am so happy she did!”

An introverted child, she moved frequently to accommodate her father’s Air Force career. She attended three different high schools before graduating from high school in Medford, New Jersey, she then moved to Houston to attend UH.

By the end of her freshman year, she had changed her major to acting.

Transitioning from a future career in science to a future career in theatre wasn’t easy. Her parents were supportive of her wanting to change majors, but they were also concerned that it would take her a long time to build a financially-stable acting career. Despite the unpredictability, Lofton says acting is her true calling and, as William Shakespeare wrote, “to thine own self be true.”

Her prior on-campus theatre experience includes Paradise Hotel, Mother Courage and Her Children, The Crucible, The Trial of Ebenezer Scrooge, and Wild Oats.

This summer, as part of the Houston Shakespeare Festival, Lofton played the role of Iras in Antony and Cleopatra and she was a Forrester/Musician in As You Like It.

Since its inception in 1975, the Houston Shakespeare Festival has grown into one of the major events on Houston's summer entertainment calendar. The event is a project of the University of Houston School of Theatre and Dance and features professional guest actors alongside rising talent.

For the 2013 event, Anthony and Cleopatra was directed by guest artist Leah C. Gardiner and As You Like It was directed by guest artist Marc Masterson. Visiting actors included Seth Gilliam, Chris Hutchison, Crystal Dickinson and Brandon Dirden.

Lofton was one of only four UH students who were selected for the Houston Shakespeare Festival cast. Joining her were a senior and two second-year Master of Fine Arts students.

“For Antony and Cleopatra, I tried to really understand what I was saying and why,” said Lofton. “I looked up information about the Egyptian lifestyle and read through the information packet that the dramaturgy team created. I would practice how my character would sit, walk, eat and flirt.”

Lofton did not have many speaking parts in As You Like It, but she did play her violin in the production.

“I practiced the music for the show as much as I could before, during, and after rehearsals,” she said. “Even though I did not speak much, I still did character work for As You Like It. I gave myself a name and a back story so I wouldn't (in my mind) just be a Forrester/Musician.”

This was Lofton’s second summer participating in the Houston Shakespeare Festival. In 2012, she served as assistant director for Comedy of Errors. As a student, taking part in the Houston Shakespeare Festival has provided Lofton with a valuable education.

“I learned so much from everybody and was glad that I could talk to anyone if I needed help,” she said. “I had an amazing time being a part of the show. The experience gave me the excitement that I needed for this upcoming school year and my future acting career.”

Bill T. Jones, choreographer, dancer, theater director and writer, has received many major honors recognizing his artistic vision and cultural leadership, including a 1994 MacArthur "Genius" Award and Kennedy Center Honors in 2010.

Part of the genius of his artistic practice is his willingness and ability to work with other innovators and masters of their craft. The list of people who have worked with Jones is long and varied – a who’s who of every artistic discipline that includes icons of American culture.

On September 12, Jones will inaugurate the Mitchell Artist Lecture Series with a talk about collaborating and breaking boundaries.

"My career has been created to collide, to cooperate, to conflict, to co-inspire, to conspire, to work in tandem, in a word: to collaborate,” Mr. Jones said. “I look forward to sharing the intermingling of these aspects of collaboration in my Mitchell Artist Lecture.”

Presented by the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center for the Arts, a reception honoring Jones begins the evening at 6p.m. and Jones’ lecture starts at 7 p.m. All activities will be on campus in the Moores Opera House, entrance 16 off Cullen Boulevard.

“Bill T. Jones encompasses everything that the Mitchell Center holds dear – artistic experimentation, activism, and true virtuosity all in one remarkable career,” said Karen Farber, director of the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center for the Arts.

Some of highlights of Jones’ artistic experimentation and collaborative endeavors include:

  • Co-creating, writing, directing and choreographing Fela, the Tony award-winning Broadway musical produced by rapper Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter, moviestars Will and Jada Pinkett Smith, Ahmir “?uestlove” Thompson of The Roots and others.
  • Choreographing the Tony award-winning Broadway musical, Spring Awakening, to music composed by singer-songwriter Duncan Sheik and lyrics by poet and playwright Steven Sater.
  • Creating the dance, Secret Pastures, that featured sets by visual artist Keith Haring, costumes by fashion designer Willi Smith, and music by experimental composer Peter Gordon.
  • Directing and performing in Degga, a collaborative work with Nobel Laureate novelist Toni Morrison and Hall of Fame jazz drummer Max Roach.
  • Creating with Grammy award-winner, operatic soprano Jessye Norman, How! Do! We! Do!, described by the New York Times as a “mosaic of song, dance, poetry and the spoken word in a series of tableaux with readings of Frank O'Hara poems forming the narrative thread.”
  • Working with journalist Bill Moyers, a recipient of a Lifetime Emmy Award, and filmmaker David Grubin on a documentary about the making of Still/Here, the dance choreographed by Jones that used video of workshops he conducted with people facing life-threatening illnesses.
  • Founding the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company with his late partner Arnie Zane.

“We are thrilled and honored to have the incomparable Bill T. Jones deliver the first ever Mitchell Artist Lecture,” Farber said. “We are truly fortunate to bring this artist back to the Houston community and introduce his legacy to the many young artists here at University of Houston.”
