Babrow, Austin S.
Communication Research, v15 n6 p680-98 Dec 1988
Reports a study comparing the way children process information about television characters and real peers. Suggests that understanding of both is based on the same construal process, is based on a common set of perceptual dimensions, and is a function of both target characteristics and the common underlying construal system.
