Hong, Injae; Kim, Min-Shik; Jeong, Su Keun – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 2022
The visual system can learn statistical regularities and form search habits that guide attention to a region where a target frequently appears. Although regularities in the real world can change over time, little is known about how such changes affect habit learning. Using a location probability learning task, we demonstrated that a constant…

Agmon, Galit; Loewenstein, Yonatan; Grodzinsky, Yosef – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 2022
Negated sentences are known to be more cognitively taxing than positive ones (i.e., "polarity effect"). We present evidence that two factors contribute to the polarity effect in verification tasks: processing the sentence and verifying its truth value. To quantify the relative contribution of each, we used a delayed verification task.…

Ichien, Nicholas; Lu, Hongjing; Holyoak, Keith J. – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 2022
Although models of word meanings based on distributional semantics have proved effective in predicting human judgments of similarity among individual concepts, it is less clear whether or how such models might be extended to account for judgments of similarity among relations between concepts. Here we combine an individual-differences approach…

Whitlock, Jonathon; Chiu, Judy Yi-Chieh; Sahakyan, Lili – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 2022
We report three item-method directed forgetting (DF) studies to evaluate whether DF impairs primarily item memory, or whether it also impairs associative memory. The current studies used a modified associative recognition paradigm that allowed disentangling item impairment from associative impairment in DF. Participants studied scene-object…

Chen, Xuemei; Wang, Suiping; Hartsuiker, Robert J. – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 2022
Structural priming studies in production have demonstrated stronger priming effects for unexpected sentence structures (inverse preference effect). This is consistent with error-based implicit learning accounts that assume learning depends on prediction error. Such prediction error can be verb-specific, leading to strong priming when a verb that…

Yin, Jun; Duan, Jipeng; Huangliang, Jiecheng; Hu, Yinfeng; Zhang, Feng – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 2022
The current study investigated whether the deep properties or shallow features of behaviors are implicitly expected to be consistent across members of highly entitative groups, by exploiting the notion that goals--as deep properties--and movements--as shallow features--can be dissociated in object-directed behaviors. Participants were asked to…

Gilden, David L.; Mezaraups, Taylor M. – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 2022
It is shown that a particular class of pauses taken in both read and composed speech obey allometric laws such that mean pause length predicts body size. The pauses in this class have durations that roughly span 250 ms to 1,000 ms and are taken to mark grammatical and prosodic boundaries. A theory of pause allometry is developed based on the…

Döring, Anna-Lisa; Abdel Rahman, Rasha; Zwitserlood, Pienie; Lorenz, Antje – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 2022
The lexical representation of compound words in speech production is still under debate. While most studies with healthy adult speakers suggest that a single lemma representation is active during compound production, data from neuropsychological studies point toward multiple representations, with activation of the compound's constituent lemmas in…

Lampe, Leonie F.; Hameau, Solène; Nickels, Lyndsey – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 2022
This research investigated how word production is influenced by six feature-based semantic variables (number of semantic features, intercorrelational density, number of near semantic neighbors, semantic similarity, typicality, and distinctiveness). We simultaneously investigated effects of the six semantic variables on spoken picture naming in a…

Dufour, Sophie; Grainger, Jonathan – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 2022
In this study we asked whether nonwords created by transposing two phonemes (/biks[open-mid back rounded vowel]t/) are perceived as being more similar to their base words (/bisk[open-mid back rounded vowel]t/) than nonwords created by substituting two phonemes (/bipf[open-mid back rounded vowel]t/). Using the short-term phonological priming and a…

Kanerva, Oksana; Häikiö, Tuomo – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 2022
We investigated whether native Finnish speakers can grasp the meaning of Russian onomatopoeic words without any prior knowledge of the Russian language. In Experiment 1, elicitation test, naïve listeners generated associations for the acoustic events depicted by onomatopoeic words they heard. A cluster analysis suggested presence of different…

Herrera, Estibaliz; Alcalá, José A.; Tazumi, Toru; Buckley, Matthew G.; Prados, José; Urcelay, Gonzalo P. – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 2022
Over the last 50 years, cue competition phenomena have shaped theoretical developments in animal and human learning. However, recent failures to observe competition effects in standard conditioning procedures, as well as the lengthy and ongoing debate surrounding cue competition in the spatial learning literature, have cast doubts on the…

Ünal, Zehra Emine; Forsberg, Alicia; Geary, David C.; Cowan, Nelson – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 2022
We investigated the role of working memory in symbolic and spatial algebra and related tasks across five experiments. Each experiment combined a processing task (expression evaluation, arithmetic, coordinate plane, geometry, or mental rotation) with verbal and spatial memory loads in a dual-task design. Spatial memory was compromised in the…

Lozin, Mariya; Pinhas, Michal – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 2022
Little is known about the mental representation of large multidigit numbers that are usually beyond our personal experience. The present study explored the processing mechanisms of these numbers in a series of experiments, using the numerical comparison task. Experiment 1 included within and between-scale comparisons of multidigit numbers varying…

Grasso, Camille L.; Ziegler, Johannes C.; Mirault, Jonathan; Coull, Jennifer T.; Montant, Marie – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 2022
The processing of time activates a spatial left-to-right mental timeline, where past events are "located" to the left and future events to the right. If past and future words activate this mental timeline, then the processing of such words should interfere with hand movements that go in the opposite direction. To test this hypothesis, we…
