Interaction of Visual and Cognitive Effects in Word Recognition
Becker, Curtis A.; Killion, Thomas H.
Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Perception and Performance, 3, 3, 389-401, Aug 77
Meyer, Schvaneveldt, and Ruddy report that semantic context has a larger effect on visually degraded words than on undegraded words. Degrading stimuli takes place by superimposing a dot pattern over letters thereby slowing information processing. Four experiments explore alternative explanations of this research finding.
