Memory systems are traditionally associated with the end stages of the visual processing sequence: attending to a perceived object allows for object recognition; information about this recognized object is stored in working memory; and eventually this information is encoded into an abstract long-term memory representation. In this talk, I will argue that memories are not truly abstract from perception: perceptual distinctions persist in memory, and our memories are impacted by the perceptual processing that is used to create them. In particular, I will talk about evidence that suggests that both visual working memory and visual long-term memory are limited by the quality and nature of their perceptual encoding, both in terms of the precision of the memories that are formed and their structure.
