Attentional Factors in Conceptual Congruency
Santiago, Julio; Ouellet, Marc; Roman, Antonio; Valenzuela, Javier
Cognitive Science, v36 n6 p1051-1077 Aug 2012
Conceptual congruency effects are biases induced by an irrelevant conceptual dimension of a task (e.g., location in vertical space) on the processing of another, relevant dimension (e.g., judging words' emotional evaluation). Such effects are a central empirical pillar for recent views about how the mind/brain represents concepts. In the present paper, we show how attentional cueing (both exogenous and endogenous) to each conceptual dimension succeeds in modifying both the manifestation and the symmetry of the effect. The theoretical implications of this finding are discussed. (Contains 1 figure and 8 tables.)
