A standardized set of 260 pictures: norms for name agreement, image agreement, familiarity, and visual complexity.
A standardized set of 260 pictures, selected to provide exemplars from several widely studied semantic categories, are presented for use in experiments investigating differences and similarities in the processing of pictures and words. Expand
Pragmatics of measuring recognition memory: applications to dementia and amnesia.
Four theoretical models of yes-no recognition memory are described and their associated measures of discrimination and response bias are presented and the indices from the acceptable models are used to characterize recognition memory deficits in dementia and amnesia. Expand
Picture naming by young children: norms for name agreement, familiarity, and visual complexity.
Researchers concerned with the development of cognitive functions are in need of standardized material that can be used with both adults and children. The present article provides normative measuresExpand
A standardized set of 260 pictures: Norms for name agreement, image agreement, familiarity, and visual complexity.
In this article we present a standardized set of 260 pictures for use in experiments investigating differences and similarities in the processing of pictures and words. The pictures areExpand
Activation Timecourse of Ventral Visual Stream Object-recognition Areas: High Density Electrical Mapping of Perceptual Closure Processes
Scalp-current density mapping of the Ncl revealed bilateral occipito-temporal scalp foci, which are consistent with generators in the human ventral visual stream, and specifically the lateral-occipital or LO complex as defined by hemodynamic studies of object recognition. Expand
Naming times for the Snodgrass and Vanderwart pictures
Voice-key responses appeared to be somewhat more sensitive indicators of naming difficulty, although keypress responses did remarkably well and the resulting naming times and correct naming rates were well predicted in multiple regression analyses. Expand
Episodic priming and memory for temporal source: event-related potentials reveal age-related differences in prefrontal functioning.
Event-related potentials were recorded from young and older adults during a recognition memory paradigm that assessed episodic priming to conclude that age-related memory differences may beDue to a deficit in a prefrontal cortical system that underlies source memory and are not likely to be due to an age- related decline in episodicPriming.

Priming effects in picture fragment completion: support for the perceptual closure hypothesis.
Across 5 experiments, a moderately complete fragmented image (Level 4) produced more priming than an almost complete (Level 7) or a very incomplete (Level 1) fragmented image, and true perceptual learning was shown to be responsible for Level 4 and Level 7 priming. Expand
Perceptual Identification Thresholds for 150 Fragmented Pictures from the Snodgrass and Vanderwart Picture Set
This paper reports perceptual identification thresholds for 150 pictures from the 1980 Snodgrass and Vanderwart picture set. These pictures were fragmented and presented on the Apple MacintoshExpand
Recognition and source memory for pictures in children and adults
It is possible that immaturity of the frontal lobes may be causally related to the children's lower performance on the source memory task, and that this brain region relative to the medial temporal lobes continues to develop into late adolescence. Expand
