Visual short term memory is limited in terms of number of objects (ususally 3-4) that can be retained, and with respect to how they may be transformed with respect to shape. The interaction between visual attention, which control entry into short-term memory, visual transformations of encoded objects, and our limited short-term memory capacity is investigated experimentally and by computer simulations.
