1. 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

2. In the early stages of visual processing model, which stage has the slowest readout and which has the fastest readout?
- Equally fast
- Visual code=fastest, name code= slowest
- Name code=fastest, visual code=slowest
- Both stages co-occur
3. What is a temporal hierarchy?
- Different forms of information take different amounts of time to recover from visual input
- Another name for iconic memory
- The speed at which pictoral information is recovered
- Knowledge of how objects behave and appear arranged in a hierarchy of highest to lowest frequency
4. 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
5. What do ambiguous figure tasks measure?
- Problem solving abilities
- How pps access image representations in the brain
- 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
