Other AbstractIn the present study, empty cell localization task was used to explore how information was integrated between visual short - term memory (VSTM) and visual perception. To explain the participants'performance of the task, two hypotheses were proposed: image - percept hypothesis and convert - and - compare hypothesis. The image - percept hypothesis suggests that participants first encode the locations of dots in array 1 and its mental image is formed to integrate with array 2. On the contrary, the convert - and - compare hypothesis asserts that participants first encode the location of empty cells in array 1 and its negative image is formed to compare with array 2. Analyzing the existing evidence for or against the two hypotheses, we found that the difference in dot distribution might contribute to different integrating strategies. To test this hypothesis, two experiments were conducted. In Experiment 1, the dot distribution of sequential arrays (4 - 11,5 - 10, 6 - 9, 7 - 8 and 8 - 7 ) and interstimulus interval ( ISI, 500 ms, 1500ms and 2500 ms) were manipulated. The resuhs showed that the accuracy was a U -shaped function of array 1 dot number and at the condition of 6 - 9 distribution the accuracy reached a lowest value. These findings suggested that integration strategies might change from "memorizing dots" to "memorizing empty cells" of array 1. In Experiment 2, participants" eye movements were monitored when performing empty cell localization task. Dot distribution varied in 3 levels (5 - 10, 6 -9, 7 -8 ) and ISI varied in 2 levels (500ms and 1500ms). The accuracy again showed a U -shaped function of array 1 dot number. In 1500ms ISI condition, there were significant differences in terms of eye movement patterns between the 3 levels of dot distribution. Specifically, in 5 -10 condition, participants showed a bias to look at dot locations during ISI period; in 6 -9 condition, participants looked at locations of dots or empty cells by chance; while in 7 - 8 condition, a bias to look at empty cell location was showed. Thus, we found clear eye -movement evidence indicating a change of integration strategy from "memorizing dots" to "memorizing empty ceils" in Experiment 2. In sum, the present study suggests that human participants are flexible in integrating sequentially presented information because a change of integration strategy is revealed by our data. We argue that the limit of VSTM capacity plays an important role in this adaptive characteristic. It seems that the "memorizing dots" strategy is adopted when dot numbers are within the capacity of VSTM while the " memorizing empty cells" strategy is adopted when dot numbers is out of VSTM capacity.
