The Simon Then Garfunkel Effect: Semantic Priming, Sensitivity, and the Modularity of Face Recognition.
Rhodes, Gillian; Tremewan, Tanya
Cognitive Psychology, v25 n2 p147-87 Apr 1993
In 5 experiments involving 306 adults, the mechanisms underlying semantic priming in the domain of face recognition, particularly famous faces, and the plausibility of modularity were assessed. Results suggest that sensitivity changes that occur when direct associative connections within the module can be ruled out pose a problem for modularity. (SLD)
