1. What did Posner & Mitchell (1967) find?
- Pps were all fastest when repsonding to physical form matches and slowest when responding to consonant matches
- Pps were all faster at responding to name matches rather than physical
- Pps were equally fast at all matching tasks
- Pps were slowest at vowel matches and fastest at consonant matches

2. What does evidence suggest about visual reasoning?
- Visual reasoning is a purely physical process, there is no cognitive abilities utilised
- Humans naturally adopt mental simulation strategies, reflecting how problem solving+perception are closely linked
- The only way humans solve visual problems is through deductive reasoning
3. What did early work by Posner & Mitchell (1967) aim to show?
- How accurate a pps cog. processes can be when asked to match letters
- The time taken for pps to respond to the task represents the cog. processes, how long it takes to recover and run visual/name codes
- How accurate pps guesses were when choosing matching letters
4. In the early stages of visual processing model, which stage has the slowest readout and which has the fastest readout?
- Both stages co-occur
- Name code=fastest, visual code=slowest
- Visual code=fastest, name code= slowest
- Equally fast
5. What do ambiguous figure tasks measure?
- Problem solving abilities
- How key features and structural relations of objects are represented in visual cognition
- The speed at which pps respond indicates the speed of the cognitive processes behind shape representation
- How pps access image representations in the brain
