Many analyses of visual search assume error-free component processes. These analyses range from Sternberg's earliest serial models to Townsend's sophisticated theorems of serial-parallel equivalence. Consider a simple "yes-no" visual search task with a set-size manipulation. For the correct positive responses, an error-free, unlimited-capacity, parallel search model predicts no effect of set size on response time. In contrast, the prediction is quite different if the component processes are… CONTINUE READING
