Experienced typists were instructed to stop typing when they detected a stop signal (a tone or a change in the display). The main question addressed in four experiments was whether typing responses were organized into words or into units smaller than the word (single letters or letter clusters). If subjects typed whole words after the stop signal, the probability of inhibiting the last letter of a word should be close to zero and should not be affected by word length. In fact, the probability… CONTINUE READING
