Cognition Processes in Skimming Stories.
Masson, Michael E. J.
Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, v8 n5 p400-17 Sep 1982

There was a reaction time advantage for verification of gist-relevant information as opposed to details, which tended to increase with reading rate. (Author/PN)
