Contextual Facilitation in a Letter Search Task Depends on How the Prime Is Processed.
Smith, Marilyn Chapnik
Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Perception and Performance, v5 n2 p239-51 May 1979
Contextual facilitation appears to depend upon the mode of analysis of the prime. If the prime is analyzed as a meaningful unit, facilitation occurs. However, if it is subjected to a more discrete, letter-by-letter analysis, the priming effect vanishes. (Author/CP)
