Abstract (type = abstract)
The purpose of the present research is to further explore the relationship between social cues and memory. In particular, the influence of eye gaze on memory was examined. This is of interest because previous work has established a link between gaze cues and attention. Here, we take this a step further and examine whether memory is also impacted by eye gaze. Participants remembered word lists presented on a computer monitor. These words were presented against a background of a human face looking away from them, looking at them, or looking at them with closed eyes. By doing so, we tested how memory was affected by its embedding in a social context. The results indicate that direct gaze increases memory performance over averted gaze when tested through a recognition test. For recall, memory instead was best for words presented on a face with closed eyes. Thus, social context differentially affects memory for different depths of processing. These results are important because they further the literature for the effects of social cues on memory processing.
