Mnemotechnics in Second-Language Learning
For some time I have been involved in efforts to develop computer-controlled systems for instruction. One such effort has been a computer-assistedinstruction (CAI) program for teaching reading in theExpand

Insight Is Not in the Problem: Investigating Insight in Problem Solving across Task Types
The feeling of insight in problem solving is typically associated with the sudden realization of a solution that appears obviously correct (Kounios et al., 2006). Salvi et al. (2016) found that aExpand

Small is beautiful: In defense of the small-N design
The dominant paradigm for inference in psychology is a null-hypothesis significance testing one. Recently, the foundations of this paradigm have been shaken by several notable replication failures.Expand

Activation in the neural network responsible for categorization and recognition reflects parameter changes
According to various influential formal models of cognition, perceptual categorization and old−new recognition recruit the same memory system. By contrast, the prevailing view in the cognitiveExpand

Response-time tests of logical-rule models of categorization.
A recent resurgence in logical-rule theories of categorization has motivated the development of a class of models that predict not only choice probabilities but also categorization response timesExpand

Working memory capacity and fluid abilities: the more difficult the item, the more more is better
TLDR
The relationship between fluid intelligence and working memory is of fundamental importance to understanding how capacity-limited structures such as working memory interact with inference abilities to determine intelligent behavior. Expand

Short-term memory scanning viewed as exemplar-based categorization.
Exemplar-similarity models such as the exemplar-based random walk (EBRW) model (Nosofsky & Palmeri, 1997b) were designed to provide a formal account of multidimensional classification choiceExpand

Logical-rule models of classification response times: a synthesis of mental-architecture, random-walk, and decision-bound approaches.
TLDR
We formalize and provide tests of a set of logical-rule models for predicting perceptual classification response times (RTs) and choice probabilities. Expand

Understanding the influence of distractors on workload capacity
Abstract In this paper, we analyze the workload capacity of information processing of multidimensional perceptual stimuli. Capacity, which describes how the processing rate of the system changes asExpand

The Categorisation of Non-Categorical Colours: A Novel Paradigm in Colour Perception
In this paper, we investigate a new paradigm for studying the development of the colour ‘signal’ by having observers discriminate and categorize the same set of controlled and calibrated cardinalExpand
