Abstract(in English) When we recognize static or dynamic multiple objects, visual working memory plays an important role in maintaining and updating the representations of the objects. In previous researches, it was reported that the capacity of visual working memory held simultaneously four or five objects binding their features. But the study using multiple object permanence tracking (MOPT) task showed that the capacity is limited more strictly. By manipulating selective attention in MOPT task, we investigated whether the estimated low capacity in MOPT reflects difficulty in maintenance or retrieval of object representations in visual working memory. Results of experiments suggest that memory for feature binding might not be maintained simultaneously in visual working memory.
