Testing the Role of Vertical Symmetry in Letter Matching
Egeth, Howard E.; And Others
Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Perception and Performance, 2, 3, 429-34, Aug 76
A series of experiments tested a recent suggestion that vertical symmetry of a stimulus display can serve as a visual diagnostic for responding "same" in a letter-matching task. The data of chief interest were same reaction times to vertically symmetric (e.g., AA) and asymmetric (e.g., LL) displays, each composed of two side-by-side uppercase letters. (Editor)
