Research on Learning from Pictures: A Review and Bibliography.
Levie, W. Howard, Ed.
Viewpoints, v49 n2 Mar 1973
Centrally concerned with research which investigated how people learn from pictures, this issue of "Viewpoints" provides a series of review articles and a bibliography. The first article reviews recent research using adult subjects in commonly used psychological research paradigms--recognition memory, recall associate learning--and introduces current theoretical propositions related to this research. The second article reviews similar research in which children were subjects, and the third article deals with studies that manipulated physical parameters of pictures--amount of detail, color, and motion. The fourth article is a review of studies of eye movement and other physiological responses to visual stimuli. The final article offers summary comments on the research reviewed in this issue. References cited in the bibliography are mostly from the review articles and are generally recent reports of empirical research appearing in broadly available publications. (Author/SH)
