Stimulus Structures and Mental Representations in Expert Comprehension of Computer Programs.
Pennington, Nancy
Cognitive Psychology, v19 n3 p295-341 Jul 1987
Professional computer programmers' mental representations of computer programs were studied. In two experiments, subjects were tested on comprehension and recognition, or asked to modify a program. The influence of procedural relations (control flow) was more dominant than the influence of functional relations (goal hierarchy). (GDC)
