Explores attention constraints of semantic activation during visual word recognition. Effect of letter search on the prime of short and long stimulus onset asynchronies (SOA); Occurrence of semantic priming at short SOA following letter-level processing of the prime; Influence of delayed...
- Cascaded versus noncascaded models of lexical and semantic processing: The turple effect. Forster, Kenneth I.; Hector, Jo // Memory & Cognition;Oct2002, Vol. 30 Issue 7, p1106
Discusses experiments relating to semantic categorization tasks. Involvement of semantic properties very early in the processing cycle; Cascaded processing system monitoring activation in semantic features; Extension of models of semantic categorization.
- Semantic Neighborhood Effects on the Recognition of Ambiguous Words. Locker Jr., Lawrence; Simpson, Greg B.; Yates, Mark // Memory & Cognition;Jun2003, Vol. 31 Issue 4, p505
The effect of semantic neighborhood on the processing of ambiguous words was examined in two lexical decision experiments. Semantic neighborhood was defined in terms of semantic set size and network connectivity. In Experiment l, the variables of semantic set size, network connectivity, and...
- Levels of representation in visual word recognition: A dissociation between morphological and... Stolz, Jennifer A.; Besner, Derek // Journal of Experimental Psychology. Human Perception & Performan;Dec98, Vol. 24 Issue 6, p1642
Discusses the use of the letter search prime task as a tool to distinguish between levels of representation underlying word recognition. Technique of semantic priming paradigm for word recognition; Dissociation between morphological and semantic priming following letter search; Implications for...
- Semantic aspects of morphological processing: Transparency effects in Serbian. Feldman, Laurine Beth; Barac-Cikoja, Dragana; Kostić, Aleksandar // Memory & Cognition;Jun2002, Vol. 30 Issue 4, p629
Examines the semantic aspects of morphological facilitation in the visual lexical decision task in Serbia. Role of semantic transparency in cross-language variation; Process of word recognition; Semantic criterion for morphological decomposition in the lexicon.
- Locus of semantic satiation examined with a serial matching task. Sekiguchi, Takahiro // Perceptual & Motor Skills;Dec99 Part 1, Vol. 89 Issue 3, p753
Examines whether semantic satiation is caused by fatigue of letter of representations or by fatigue of word orthographic or semantic representations. Semantic satiation as the apparent loss of the meaning of a word following continuous exposure to that word; Use of a serial-matching task to...
- When are Morphemic and Semantic Priming Observed in Visual Word Recognition? Macnevin, Christa; Besner, Derek // Canadian Journal of Experimental Psychology;Jun2002, Vol. 56 Issue 2, p112
Investigates the dissociation between morphemic and semantic priming in the context of visual word recognition. Concept of Stroop effect; Parallel effects of color identification of a single letter in the prime on letter search on the prime; Ways in reducing the semantic priming and Stroop effects.
- Contribution of High Frequencies to Speech Recognition in Quiet and Noise in Listeners With Varying Degrees of High-Frequency Sensorineural Hearing Loss. Amos, Nathan E.; Humes, Larry E. // Journal of Speech, Language & Hearing Research;Aug2007, Vol. 50 Issue 4, p819
Purpose: The contribution of audible high-frequency information to speech-understanding performance in listeners with varying degrees of high-frequency sensorineural hearing loss was examined. Method: Thirty-six elderly hearing-impaired (EHI) and 24 young normal-hearing (YNH) listeners were...
