Wyer, Robert S., Jr.; Radvansky, Gabriel A.
Psychological Review, v106 n1 p89-118 Jan 1999
Proposes a theory of social cognition to account for the comprehension and verification of social information.

The comprehension of both single statements and multiple pieces of information in combination is considered. (Author/GCP)
