Semantic and Perceptual Processes in Symbolic Comparisons
Banks, William P.; Flora, Julianne
Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Perception and Performance, 3, 2, 278-90, May 77
Studies the processing of pictures and words as symbols. Shows that the superiority of pictures results from the fact that pictures are interpreted more quickly than words, but that after the interpretation is made, processing is the same. Also gives evidence that pictures and words are both processed in terms of linguistic codes rather than mental images. (Editor/RK)
