1. 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

2. In the early stages of visual processing model, which stage has the slowest readout and which has the fastest readout?
- Equally fast
- Both stages co-occur
- Visual code=fastest, name code= slowest
- Name code=fastest, visual code=slowest
3. 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
4. What did early work by Posner & Mitchell (1967) aim to show?
- 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
- How accurate a pps cog. processes can be when asked to match letters
5. 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 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
- That mental simulation was not an efficient way of completing matching tasks
