  • Whereas much is known about how humans categorize and reason based on absolute quantities, research investigating the processing of relative quantities, such as proportions, is comparatively limited. The current study used a Stroop-like paradigm to examine adults’ automatic processing of nonsymbolic proportions and how presentation formats modulate this processing. Participants were asked to compare individual components across proportions in six different presentation formats. Congruity… CONTINUE READING
