1. 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

2. 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

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?

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

5. 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
  • 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
  • Pps retrieved the information of the letter form from the visual code
