Alternative strategies of categorization
This paper argues against this unitary view, and for the existence of qualitatively different categorization processes, and focuses on the distinction between categorizing an item by: applying a category-defining rule to the item vs. determining the similarity of that item to remembered exemplars of a category.
Learning about categories that are defined by object-like stimuli despite impaired declarative memory.
The results suggest that the implicit acquisition of category knowledge is a common process in everyday experience, and that it can occur whenever individuals encounter a large group of related items.
PET evidence for multiple strategies of categorization
The identification of strategy-specific neural patterns offers future researchers a diagnostic tool for assessing strategy use in other situations.
Spontaneous number discrimination of multi-format auditory stimuli in cotton-top tamarins (Saguinus oedipus)
Results show that at least one non-human primate species can spontaneously discriminate number in both the visual and auditory domain, indicating that this capacity is not tied to a particular modality, and within amodality, can accommodate differences in format.
Memory for impasses during problem solving
The results illustrate that when impasses in problem solving are infrequent, they are more available in memory than are solved problems, and may facilitate the recognition of opportunities to return to problems that have been terminated short of solution.
The relationship between indecisiveness and eye movement patterns in a decision making informational search task
Indecisiveness is a trait-related general tendency to experience decision difficulties across a variety of situations, leading to decision delay, worry, and regret. Indecisiveness is proposed
