1. What is a temporal hierarchy?
- The speed at which pictoral information is recovered
- 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
- Another name for iconic memory

2. 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
3. In the early stages of visual processing model, which stage has the slowest readout and which has the fastest readout?
- Both stages co-occur
- Visual code=fastest, name code= slowest
- Equally fast
- Name code=fastest, visual code=slowest
4. What does evidence suggest about visual reasoning?
- 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
- Visual reasoning is a purely physical process, there is no cognitive abilities utilised
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
- 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
