Basic objects in natural categories
Abstract Categorizations which humans make of the concrete world are not arbitrary but highly determined. In taxonomies of concrete objects, there is one level of abstraction at which the most basicExpand

Damaged Merchandise? A Review of Experiments That Compare Usability Evaluation Methods
TLDR
An interest in the design of interfaces has been a core topic for researchers and practitioners in the field of human-computer interaction (HCI). Expand

The soft constraints hypothesis: a rational analysis approach to resource allocation for interactive behavior.
Soft constraints hypothesis (SCH) is a rational analysis approach that holds that the mixture of perceptual-motor and cognitive resources allocated for interactive behavior is adjusted based onExpand

Soft constraints in interactive behavior: the case of ignoring perfect knowledge in-the-world for imperfect knowledge in-the-head
TLDR
Soft constraints lead to a reliance on knowledge in-the-world even when the absolute difference in perceptual-motor versus memory retrieval effort is small, and even when relying on memory leads to a higher error rate and lower performance. Expand

An integrated model of cognitive control in task switching.
A model of cognitive control in task switching is developed in which controlled performance depends on the system maintaining access to a code in episodic memory representing the most recently cuedExpand

Project Ernestine: Validating a GOMS Analysis for Predicting and Explaining Real-World Task Performance
TLDR
We compare the worktimes of telephone company toll and assistance operators on two different workstations and validate a GOMS analysis for predicting and explaining real-world performance. Expand

Forgetting to Remember: The Functional Relationship of Decay and Interference
Functional decay theory proposes that decay and interference, historically viewed as competing accounts of forgetting, are instead functionally related. The theory posits that (a) when an attributeExpand
