  1. Object substitution masking induced by illusory masks: evidence for higher object-level locus of interference.

    Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Perce... 35(4):931 (2009) PMID 19653739

    A briefly presented target can be rendered invisible by a lingering sparse mask that does not even touch it. This form of visual backward masking, called object substitution masking, is thought to occur at the object level of processing. However, it remains unclear whether object-level interfere...
  2. Perceived shrinkage of motion paths.

    Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Perce... 35(4):948 (2009) PMID 19653741

    We show that human observers strongly underestimate a linear or circular trajectory that a luminous spot follows in the dark. At slow speeds, observers are relatively accurate, but, as the speed increases, the size of the path is progressively underestimated, by up to 35%. The underestimation im...
  3. Linear changes in the spatial extent of the focus of attention across time.

    Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Perce... 35(4):1020 (2009) PMID 19653746

    This research examined changes in the spatial extent of focal attention over time. The Attentional Blink (impaired perception of the second of two targets) and Lag-1 sparing (the seemingly paradoxical finding that second-target accuracy is high when the second target immediately follows the firs...
  4. Motivationally significant stimuli show visual prior entry: evidence for attentional capture.

    Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Perce... 35(4):1032 (2009) PMID 19653747

    Previous studies that have found attentional capture effects for stimuli of motivational significance do not directly measure initial attentional deployment, leaving it unclear to what extent these items produce attentional capture. Visual prior entry, as measured by temporal order judgments (TO...
  5. Virtual limbs and body space: Critical features for the distinction between body space and near-body space.

    Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Perce... 35(4):1092 (2009) PMID 19653751

    Hari and Jousmaki (1996) found that motor activity is initiated more efficiently in response to stimuli located on the responding limb as opposed to near the limb. Our research investigated the basis for this difference in spatial coding. We conducted 8 experiments using virtual reality to manip...
  6. Dissociating consciousness from inhibitory control: evidence for unconsciously triggered response inhibition in the stop-signal task.

    Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Perce... 35(4):1129 (2009) PMID 19653754

    Theories about the functional relevance of consciousness commonly posit that higher order cognitive control functions, such as response inhibition, require consciousness. To test this assertion, the authors designed a masked stop-signal paradigm to examine whether response inhibition could be tr...
  7. The comparison of visual working memory representations with perceptual inputs.

    Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Perce... 35(4):1140 (2009) PMID 19653755 PMCID PMC2726625

    The human visual system can notice differences between memories of previous visual inputs and perceptions of new visual inputs, but the comparison process that detects these differences has not been well characterized. In this study, the authors tested the hypothesis that differences between the...
  8. A comparison of the effects of depth rotation on visual and haptic three-dimensional object recognition.

    Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Perce... 35(4):911 (2009) PMID 19653738

    A sequential matching task was used to compare how the difficulty of shape discrimination influences the achievement of object constancy for depth rotations across haptic and visual object recognition. Stimuli were nameable, 3-dimensional plastic models of familiar objects (e.g., bed, chair) and...
  9. Perceived shrinkage of motion paths.

    Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Perce... 35(4):948 (2009) PMID 19653741

    We show that human observers strongly underestimate a linear or circular trajectory that a luminous spot follows in the dark. At slow speeds, observers are relatively accurate, but, as the speed increases, the size of the path is progressively underestimated, by up to 35%. The underestimation im...
  10. Species of redundancy in visual target detection.

    Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Perce... 35(4):958 (2009) PMID 19653742

    We report a series of investigations into the effects of common names, physical identity, and physical similarity on visual detection time. The effect of these factors on the capacity of the system processing the signals was also examined. We used a redundant targets design with separate testing...
  11. The perception of temporal order along the mental number line.

    Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Perce... 35(4):989 (2009) PMID 19653744

    R. Sekuler, P. Tynan, and E. Levinson (1973) found that when 2 characters are presented side-by-side with a short onset asynchrony, subjectively they often appear in a "first-left, then-right" order. The authors of this article conducted 6 experiments in which observers judged the temporal order...
  12. Virtual limbs and body space: Critical features for the distinction between body space and near-body space.

    Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Perce... 35(4):1092 (2009) PMID 19653751

    Hari and Jousmaki (1996) found that motor activity is initiated more efficiently in response to stimuli located on the responding limb as opposed to near the limb. Our research investigated the basis for this difference in spatial coding. We conducted 8 experiments using virtual reality to manip...
  13. Do Chinese readers obtain preview benefit from word n + 2? Evidence from eye movements.

    Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Perce... 35(4):1192 (2009) PMID 19653758

    The boundary paradigm (K. Rayner, 1975) was used to determine the extent to which Chinese readers obtain information from the right of fixation during reading. As characters are the basic visual unit in written Chinese, they were used as targets in Experiment 1 to examine whether readers obtain ...
  14. Species of redundancy in visual target detection.

    Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Perce... 35(4):958 (2009) PMID 19653742

    We report a series of investigations into the effects of common names, physical identity, and physical similarity on visual detection time. The effect of these factors on the capacity of the system processing the signals was also examined. We used a redundant targets design with separate testing...
  15. Is phonological context always used to recognize variant forms in spoken word recognition? The role of variant frequency and context distribution.

    Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Perce... 35(4):1205 (2009) PMID 19653759

    Several mechanisms have been proposed to account for how listeners accommodate regular phonological variation in connected speech. Using a corpus analysis and 5 cross-modal priming experiments, the authors investigate phonological variant recognition for the American English word-final flap. The...
  16. The various perceptions of distance: an alternative view of how effort affects distance judgments.

    Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Perce... 35(4):1104 (2009) PMID 19653752 PMCID PMC2892267

    D. R. Proffitt and colleagues (e. g., D. R. Proffitt, J. Stefanucci, T. Banton, & W. Epstein, 2003) have suggested that objects appear farther away if more effort is required to act upon them (e.g., by having to throw a ball). The authors attempted to replicate several findings supporting this v...
  17. Generalized signaling for control: evidence from postconflict and posterror performance adjustments.

    Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Perce... 35(4):1161 (2009) PMID 19653756 PMCID PMC2881467

    Goal-directed behavior requires cognitive control to effect online adjustments in response to ongoing processing demands. How signaling for these adjustments occurs has been a question of much interest. A basic question regarding the architecture of the cognitive control system is whether such s...
  18. Transfer between pose and illumination training in face recognition.

    Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Perce... 35(4):939 (2009) PMID 19653740

    The relationship between pose and illumination learning in face recognition was examined in a yes-no recognition paradigm. The authors assessed whether pose training can transfer to a new illumination or vice versa. Results show that an extensive level of pose training through a face-name associ...
  19. Covert auditory spatial orienting: an evaluation of the spatial relevance hypothesis.

    Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Perce... 35(4):1178 (2009) PMID 19653757

    The spatial relevance hypothesis (J. J. McDonald & L. M. Ward, 1999) proposes that covert auditory spatial orienting can only be beneficial to auditory processing when task stimuli are encoded spatially. We present a series of experiments that evaluate 2 key aspects of the hypothesis: (a) that "...
  20. Action semantic knowledge about objects is supported by functional motor activation.

    Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Perce... 35(4):1118 (2009) PMID 19653753

    The present study assessed the functional organization of action semantics by asking subjects to categorize pictures of an actor holding objects with a correct or incorrect grip at either a correct or incorrect goal location. Overall, reaction times were slower if the object was presented with a...
