Recent work in perception, learning and cognition has uncovered substantial evidence for a unifying information-processing mechanism, known as 'chunking'. Such a mechanism was initially proposed by De Groot 1,2 , based on studies of problem solving, and by Miller 3 , based on studies of perception and memory. Miller's key contribution was to propose an(More)
Previous research on the temporal chunk signal has focused on the use of pauses in behaviour to probe chunk structures in working memory. On the basis of some of these studies, a hierarchical process model has been proposed, which consist of four hierarchical levels describing different kind of pauses. In this model, the lowest level consists of pauses(More)
The authors report at adult age 7 patients (6 men, one woman) with the syndrome of "acquired aphasia-epilepsy", 6 of which had been previously studied as children. The results of the language, neuropsychological and socio-educational evaluation detailed many years after the onset of the aphasia are the subject of this report. One man has recovered(More)
Echocardiography plays an integral role in the detection of mechanical dyssynchrony in patients with congestive heart failure and in predicting beneficial response to cardiac resynchronization treatment. In patients who derive sup-optimal benefit from biventricular pacing, optimization of atrioventricular delay post cardiac resynchronization treatment has(More)

Earlier studies have suggested that proficient map readers employ cognitive strategies such as information chunking and schemas to aid information processing. In this paper experienced and non-experienced map readers studied and reproduced firstly a town map and then a topographical map. No group differences were observed for the town map task. When the(More)
