Pexman, Penny M.; Yap, Melvin J. – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 2018
Most previous studies of semantic processing have examined group-level data. We investigated the possibility that there might be individual differences in semantic decision performance even among the standard undergraduate population and that such differences might provide insights into semantic processing. We analyzed the Calgary Semantic…
