Researchers have long sought to distinguish between single-process and dual-process cognitive phenomena, using responses such as reaction times and, more recently, hand movements. Analysis of a response distribution’s modality has been crucial in detecting the presence of dual processes, because they tend to introduce bimodal features. Rarely, however, have bimodality measures been systematically evaluated. We carried out tests of readily available bimodality measures that any researcher may… Expand
The response dynamics of recognition memory: Sensitivity and bias.

TLDR
In 4 studies, it is shown that response dynamics can augment the authors' current analytic repertoire in a way that speaks to the psychological mechanisms underlying recognition memory and discriminate between differentiation and criterion-shift accounts. Expand
Response trajectories capture the continuous dynamics of the size congruity effect.
TLDR
It is found that incongruities between numerical and physical sizes are carried throughout the response process and result from competition between parallel and partially active response options, lending further support to a late interaction model of the size congruity effect. Expand
Learning of bimodally distributed quantities
TLDR
Overall, participants were able to learn the various distributions quickly and accurately, however, their performance is moderated by stimuli type—whether participants were learning a distribution over numbers (low noise) or over sizes of circles (high noise). Expand
Fast saccadic eye-movements in humans suggest that numerosity perception is automatic and direct
TLDR
The results suggest that fast numerosity-driven saccades may be generated on a single feed-forward pass of information recruiting a primitive system that cuts through the cortical hierarchy and rapidly transforms the numerosity information into a saccade command. Expand
No Time, No Problem
We describe an experiment that examined mental state attributions as a function of manipulated response speed. Based upon dual-process theories of cognition, the purpose was to examine the degree toExpand
Individual differences in intrinsic brain connectivity predict decision strategy.
TLDR
It is found that human participants reliably selected one of two strategies across 2 days of task performance, either continuously accumulating evidence or waiting for task difficulty to decrease, suggesting that spontaneous brain activity constrains strategy selection on perceptual decisions.

The bimodality of saccade duration during the exploration of visual scenes
ABSTRACT Eye movement parameters are consistently investigated, and the distribution of these parameters are well known. Whereas saccade duration has been studied along with saccade amplitude , theExpand
Testing a direct mapping versus competition account of response dynamics in number comparison†
ABSTRACT Tracking hand movements during number tasks has become a powerful method for disentangling competing models of numerical representation. In two experiments, participants used a computerExpand
Overestimation of volatility in schizophrenia and autism? A comparative study using a probabilistic reasoning task
TLDR
The results of the current study provide partial support for the notion of a general uncertainty misestimation account of autism and schizophrenia with a particular focus on estimation of volatility, i.e. the probability for the environment to change. Expand
Response trajectories reveal the temporal dynamics of fraction representations.
TLDR
Before settling to the correct answer, hand trajectories showed competitive influences of component magnitude and overall fraction magnitude, but the influence of components happened much earlier, supporting the idea that in fraction comparison, component magnitudes and holistic magnitude are processed together in a continuous, competitive manner.

Separating multiple processes in implicit social cognition: the quad model of implicit task performance.
TLDR
The quadruple process model proposed and tested in the present article quantitatively disentangles the influences of 4 distinct processes on implicit task performance: the likelihood that automatic bias is activated by a stimulus; that a correct response can be determined; thatautomatic bias is overcome; and that, in the absence of other information, a guessing bias drives responses.

A process dissociation framework: Separating automatic from intentional uses of memory
Abstract This paper begins by considering problems that have plagued investigations of automatic or unconscious influences of perception and memory. A process dissociation procedure that provides anExpand
Dual-processing accounts of reasoning, judgment, and social cognition.

TLDR
This article reviews a diverse set of proposals for dual processing in higher cognition within largely disconnected literatures in cognitive and social psychology and suggests that while some dual-process theories are concerned with parallel competing processes involving explicit and implicit knowledge systems, others are concerns with the influence of preconscious processes that contextualize and shape deliberative reasoning and decision-making.

Graded motor responses in the time course of categorizing atypical exemplars
TLDR
The time course of categorization was investigated in four experiments, which revealed graded competitive effects in a categorization task and carry implications for theories of representation in cognitive science. Expand
Exploring Action Dynamics as an Index of Paired-Associate Learning
TLDR
Results support a graded and systematic covariation between cognition and action, and recommend ways in which this theoretical perspective may contribute to applied learning contexts. Expand

TLDR
It is concluded that two-system models currently provide little scientific advance, and researchers are encouraged to adopt more rigorous conceptual definitions and employ more stringent criteria for testing the empirical evidence in support for two- system theories. Expand
Continuous dynamics in the real-time perception of race
Abstract Although the outcomes of race categorization have been studied in detail, the temporal dynamics of real-time processing of race remain elusive. We measured participants’ hand movements enExpand

TLDR
In 3 studies, online motor output revealed continuous dynamics underlying person construal, in which multiple simultaneously and partially active category representations gradually cascade into social categorical judgments. Expand
