1. What is the ideal finding in a typical priming experiment?

  • Concious report of the prime. Significantly better report of the second word if semantically unrelated to the prime > related, indicating unconscious processing
  • No concious report of the prime. Significantly better report of the second word if semantically related to the prime > unrelated, indicating unconscious processing
  • No concious report of the prime. Significantly better report of the second word if semantically unrelated to the prime > related, indicating unconscious processing
  • Concious report of the prime. Significantly better report of the second word if semantically related to the prime > unrelated, indicating unconscious processing

2. What is a standard finding in target onset detection tasks?

  • A slower reaction time to detect a target onset when it is cued, the cue shifts attention to the SAME side of space
  • A slower reaction time to detect a target onset when it is cued, the cue shifts attention to a DIFFERENT side of space
  • A faster reaction time to detect a target onset when it is cued, the cue shifts attention to the SAME side of space
  • A faster reaction time to detect a target onset when it is cued, the cue shifts attention to a DIFFERENT side of space

3. In studies of blindsight pps, what was found re; amygdala activation?

  • Amygdala active when stimulus in sighted visual areas but not in scotoma
  • Amygdala discriminates emotions of faces even if in scotoma i.e below concious processing
  • Amygdala cannot discriminate emotions of faces in scotoma

4. Which task would you use to measure attentional capture?

  • Emotional stroop task
  • Target onset detection task
  • Attentional blink
  • Gabor patches

5. When stimulus are presented in sequence to the same location, a second target is not always detected;

  • The emotional properties of the second missed target are processed even though not conciously reported
  • The emotional encoding activates the amygdala
  • All of the above
  • This is called attentional blink
