Mental Rotation of Three-Dimensional Objects
The time required to recognize that two perspective drawings portray objects of the same three-dimensional shape is found to be (i) a linearly increasing function of the angular difference in theExpand

Toward a universal law of generalization for psychological science.
A psychological space is established for any set of stimuli by determining metric distances between the stimuli such that the probability that a response learned to any stimulus will generalize toExpand

The analysis of proximities: Multidimensional scaling with an unknown distance function. I.
A computer program is described that is designed to reconstruct the metric configuration of a set of points in Euclidean space on the basis of essentially nonmetric information about thatExpand

The analysis of proximities: Multidimensional scaling with an unknown distance function. II
The first in the present series of two papers described a computer program for multidimensional scaling on the basis of essentially nonmetric data. This second paper reports the results of two kindsExpand

TLDR
American mathematical psychologists have developed computer-based methods for constructing representations of the psychological structure of a set of stimuli on the basis of pairwise measures of similarity or confusability. Expand

Recognition memory for words, sentences, and pictures
The S s looked through a series of about 600 stimuli selected at random from an initially larger population. They were then tested for their ability to recognize these “old” stimuli in pairs in whichExpand

Circularity in Judgments of Relative Pitch
A special set of computer‐generated complex tones is shown to lead to a complete breakdown of transitivity in judgments of relative pitch. Indeed, the tones can be represented as equally spacedExpand
