Controlled and automatic human information processing: II. Perceptual learning, automatic attending and a general theory.
Tested the 2-process theory of detection, search, and attention presented by the current authors (1977) in a series of experiments. The studies (a) demonstrate the qualitative difference between 2Expand
Controlled and Automatic Human Information Processing: 1. Detection, Search, and Attention.
A series of studies using both reaction time and accuracy measures is presented, which traces these concepts in the form of automatic detection and controlled, search through the areas of detection, search, and attention and resolves a number of apparent conflicts in the literature. Expand
Micro Experimental Laboratory: An integrated system for IBM PC compatibles
MEL provides a systematic approach to dealing with nine concerns in running an experimental laboratory and includes a Pascal-like programming language and can call routines written in standard languages. Expand
Cross‐cultural effect on the brain revisited: Universal structures plus writing system variation
The results suggest that these writing systems utilize a common network of regions in word processing, and the region known as the visual word form area (VWFA) shows strikingly consistent localization across tasks and across writing systems. Expand
The cognitive control network: Integrated cortical regions with dissociable functions
This approach illustrates one way in which a neuronal network can be identified, its high functional connectivity established, and its components dissociated in order to better understand the interactive and specialized internal mechanisms of that network. Expand
Training High-Performance Skills: Fallacies and Guidelines
Empirical characteristics of high-performance skill acquisition are reviewed, including long acquisition periods, heterogeneity of component learning, development of inappropriate strategies, and training of timesharing skills. Expand
Controlled & automatic processing: behavior, theory, and biological mechanisms
Recent progress in mapping the components of this model onto specific neuroanatomical substrates are described, and the potential for applying functional neuroimaging techniques to test the model’s predictions, and its relation to other models are briefly discussed. Expand
Neuroimaging studies of practice-related change: fMRI and meta-analytic evidence of a domain-general control network for learning.
The principal effect of practice was found to be a reduction in the extent and magnitude of activity in a cortical network spanning bilateral dorsal prefrontal, left ventral prefrontal, medial frontal (anterior cingulate), left insular, bilateral parietal, and occipito-temporal areas. Expand
Perceptual Knowledge Retrieval Activates Sensory Brain Regions
Using neuroimaging methods, it is shown that semantic decisions that index tactile, gustatory, auditory, and visual knowledge specifically activate brain regions associated with encoding these sensory experiences. Expand
