1. What is a temporal hierarchy?

  • The speed at which pictoral information is recovered
  • Different forms of information take different amounts of time to recover from visual input
  • Another name for iconic memory
  • Knowledge of how objects behave and appear arranged in a hierarchy of highest to lowest frequency

2. What do ambiguous figure tasks measure?

  • How pps access image representations in the brain
  • How key features and structural relations of objects are represented in visual cognition
  • Problem solving abilities
  • The speed at which pps respond indicates the speed of the cognitive processes behind shape representation

3. What did a mental transformation study using rotated letters by Cooper&Shepard (1973) show?

  • That there was evidence of a visual code store during matching
  • That mental simulation was not an efficient way of completing matching tasks
  • That pps mentally simulated the physical event of a rotated letter in order to efficiently perform during matching
  • Pps retrieved the information of the letter form from the visual code

4. In the early stages of visual processing model, which stage has the slowest readout and which has the fastest readout?

  • Visual code=fastest, name code= slowest
  • Both stages co-occur
  • Name code=fastest, visual code=slowest
  • Equally fast

5. What did Posner & Mitchell (1967) find?

  • Pps were slowest at vowel matches and fastest at consonant matches
  • Pps were all fastest when repsonding to physical form matches and slowest when responding to consonant matches
  • Pps were equally fast at all matching tasks
  • Pps were all faster at responding to name matches rather than physical
