The discovery of processing stages: Extensions of Donders' method
It is demonstrated that stage-durations may be additive without being stochastically independent, a result that is relevant to the formulation of mathematical models of RT. Expand
High-Speed Scanning in Human Memory
When subjects judge whether a test symbol is contained in a short memorized sequence of symbols, their mean reaction-time increases linearly with the length of the sequence, implying the existence of an internal serial-comparison process. Expand
The Latency and Duration of Rapid Movement Sequences: Comparisons of Speech and Typewriting
This chapter discusses response factors that affect the time to initiate a prespecified rapid movement sequence after a signal when the goal is to complete the sequence as quickly as possible as well as how such factors affect the rate at which movements in the sequence are produced. Expand
Memory Scanning: New Findings and Current Controversies
Introduction : the reaction-time method in memory research. The item-recognition paradigm. Early findings and interpretations : the exhaustive-search model. Generalizations and extensions of paradigmExpand
The Perception of Temporal Order: Fundamental Issues and a General Model
How do people judge the order of two nearly simultaneous stimuli, such as a light and a tone? We consider this question in the context of a general independent-channels model that incorporates mostExpand
Separate modifiability, mental modules, and the use of pure and composite measures to reveal them.
This paper presents a taxonomy of separate-modifiability methods, discusses their inferential logic, and describes several examples in each category, which concern behavioral measures and functional processes, while four concern brain measures and neural processes. Expand
