Theoretical accounts of complex human information-processing behavior have emphasized the utilization of contingencies whereby the processing of some information directs the processing requirements of the remaining sources of uncertainty. The present investigation sought to determine how such flexible processing might be accomplished in a speeded recognition task where the relevancy of a given stimulus dimension was contingent upon the value of the stimulus on some other dimension. These… CONTINUE READING
