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

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

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

4. 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

5. What is a temporal hierarchy?

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