Semantic priming effects in a patient with a semantic short-term memory deficit
Some researchers have argued that short-term memory (STM) deficits are due to overly rapid loss of activation of the nodes in the lexical-semantic system. The current study investigated the activation and decay of semantic ...
Foraging memory: Retrieving words from one and from two semantic categories
Traditionally applied to an animal's search for food, the concept of foraging has been extended to include the search for information in such places as the Internet and libraries (Pirotti & Card, 1999). The premise behind ...
Demonstrating semantic priming without using primes
Whether priming can occur in the absence of prime identification is a long debated question. The standard priming paradigm used to explore the issue has been criticized on methodological grounds. The present study introduces ...
The role of inhibitory control in garden-path recovery
The role of inhibitory control in garden-path recovery was examined in two self-paced reading experiments. Participants read sentence primes that were either garden-path or non-garden-path and that included an equi-biased ...
Motion asymmetry theory: A unifying account of motion/position illusions?
The motion/position illusion refers to phenomena in which an object is systematically mislocalized in the presence of motion. The object's location is usually misperceived in the direction of motion. We tested the hypothesis ...
Training in dyads: Cost-effective or costly for later performance?
Previous studies have shown dyad training increases efficiency while trainees perform as well as those trained individually. The current studies investigated the effects of dyad training on immediate and delayed performance ...
