Knowledge Activation versus Sentence Mapping When Representing Fictional Characters' Emotional States.
Gernsbacher, Morton Ann; Robertson, Rachel R. W.
Language and Cognitive Processes, v7 n3-4 p353-71 Aug-Nov 1992
In a study of knowledge activation and sentence mapping, subjects read stories that described concrete actions, and then the content of the stories was manipulated (i.e. stories were written that implied different emotional states). It is suggested that the more emotionally evoking situations one encounters the more memory traces are stored and available. (29 references) (Author/LB)
