To interact successfully with the visual world, human beings must be able to store brief mental representations of spatio-temporal structures. In traditional models however, visual sensory storage corresponds to a single snapshot. We present empirical evidence that successive arrays of alphanumeric stimuli can be held in a buffer that preserves their temporal order. We suggest how existing models of visual sensory storage could be revised to accommodate our results and we discuss practical implications for studies that use backward masking to “terminate the icon”.
