Using confidence intervals in within-subject designs
We argue that to best comprehend many data sets, plotting judiciously selected sample statistics with associated confidence intervals can usefully supplement, or even replace, standardExpand

Evocation of functional and volumetric gestural knowledge by objects and words
We distinguish between grasping gestures associated with using an object for its intended purpose (functional) and those used to pick up an object (volumetric) and we develop a novel experimentalExpand

Prime Validity Affects Masked Repetition Priming: Evidence for an Episodic Resource Account of Priming
Masked repetition priming in the lexical decision task was found to be greater when prime validity, defined as the proportion of repetition versus unrelated primes, was high (0.8) rather than lowExpand

Beyond spreading activation: An influence of relatedness proportion on masked semantic priming
Semantic priming in the lexical decision task has been shown to increase when the proportion of related-prime trials is increased. This finding typically is taken as evidence for a conscious,Expand

Masked Repetition Priming of Words and Nonwords: Evidence for a Nonlexical Basis for Priming
Abstract Lexical decisions for low- and high-frequency words are equally facilitated by masked repetition priming, whereas nonwords typically show no effect of such priming. This pattern of resultsExpand
