Knowledge and Memory Research Group
Our research group focuses on semantic memory processes. Using mostly visual stimuli we investigate:
1. knowledge acquisition processes: application and development of learning strategies (rule-learning vs. implicit information-integration) from the early years till elderly;
2. application of the existing knowledge: understanding analogies, and application of them into similar situations;
3. activation of knowledge base in case of visual events (model-based memory processes).
We are also interested in the impact of knowledge representation to early concepts in infancy. We apply behavioral method in different age groups, eye-tracking method, and event-related potential. Our research results could be used in case of expert knowledge, and knowledge transfer.
