I am currently writing up my first year report. The data set at this point includes 23 participants (aim n = 24) and I am really happy to report that I found a significant quadratic relationship between object/location expectancy and memory performance. Now, the question is whether the quadratic effect is consistent across participants or whether some participants even show the reverse effect. Fortunately, the effect seems to be very consistent. All participants show a positive quadratic effect.
Besides that Bradley Love gave a talk about memory compression and the role of the mPFC in it at the Chaucher Club last week. This reminded me of the role of the mPFC in schema memory. I definitely have to read his articles and see how both could be related.
