Don't believe everything you read, even if it is peer reviewed.

Yeah... my advisor's really good at hearing the gossip of what replicates and what doesn't, but I guess it's always impossible to know for sure! (And I guess I shouldn't say it "doesn't replicate", since it's hard to say how my non-replications should weigh against the original results, but just that it's less robust than I'd want since I was planning on using their paradigm for future research.)

Zan: there's this literature on how our visual system processes discrete visual objects ("mug", "chair", "couch") differently than the layout of the major surfaces (walls, ground, etc.), but tons of visual memory research focuses on how we build a mental picture of the configurations of objects, and very little focuses on our mental picture of larger surfaces ("scene layout"). This paper is the go-to citation for showing scene layout information being stored by the visual system over brief delays, but the experiment that the "scene layout" part of their claim hinges on is the one that I haven't been able to replicate yet :/
