Iconic Memory

Iconic memory is a momentary photograph-like picture that remains in your mind of a stimulus. I used the picture of a man sitting backwards in a chair because that's something you could see that would remain in your iconic memory for a couple of seconds and you would be able to recall it.

Iconic Memory: a momentary sensory memory of visual stimuli; a photographic or picture-image memory lasting no more than a few tenths of a second.
