Stimulus–response bindings in priming
The negative priming paradigm: An update and implications for selective attention
TLDR
It is argued that the paradigm – although it does not measure a single cognitive process alone – is still a useful tool for understanding selection in cognition and that research on NP is relevant for all research fields analyzing selection.
Distractor Repetitions Retrieve Previous Responses to Targets
TLDR
This article tested a specific prediction of a recent variant of stimulus retrieval theories as introduced by Rothermund, Wentura, and De Houwer (2005): in selection tasks where target stimuli are accompanied by distractors, responses to target stimulus are automatically bound to distractor stimuli as well; repeating the distractor should retrieve the response to the target that formerly accompanied the distraction.
Repeated masked category primes interfere with related exemplars: new evidence for negative semantic priming.
In 4 experiments, the authors found evidence for negatively signed masked semantic priming effects (with category names as primes and exemplars as targets) using a new technique of presenting the
Binding and Retrieval in Action Control (BRAC)
Who will win Wimbledon? The recognition heuristic in predicting sports events
TLDR
The recognition heuristic may be effectively generalized to dynamic environments where the quality of the actors rises and falls, such as in sports.
Strategy effects counteract distractor inhibition: negative priming with constantly absent probe distractors.
TLDR
In three experiments without probe distractors, the authors yielded evidence that response-biasing processes based on the contingency between prime and probe displays may have caused the absence of negative priming.
Negative priming with masked distractor-only prime trials: awareness moderates negative priming.
TLDR
Two different hypotheses are contrasted on the inconsistent findings of negative priming following masked distractor-only prime trials: one - which is most compatible with the temporal discrimination theory - that relates the sign of priming effects to the absence vs. presence of prime awareness and one -which is mostcompatible with the inhibition and episodic retrieval accounts.
