Perceptual Set and Language Directionality.

  title={Perceptual Set and Language Directionality.},
  author={V. Keenan},
After tachistoscopic exposure of a row of letters, recall functions show bowing and skewedness similar to the standard serial position curve that results from sequential presentation of elements. A similar curve is generated by recall of binary elements presented briefly and simultaneoualy. Prior investigators have interpreted this effect as an internal, post-exposure, sequential processing of the pattern from left to right as determined by reading habits. In this experiment, 48 children who…

Encoding in the perceptual (visual) serial position effect
On the basis of the verbal loop hypothesis, specific changes in the shape of the perceptual serial position curve were predicted as a function of encoding, or verbalization length of the stimulus,
On the transfer from iconic to short-term memory
Abstract : Pairs of eight-letter sequences, zero-order or second-order approximations to English, were presented for 50, 125, or 200 msec. The materials were masked 0, 75, or 125 msec. after the
Configuration Determinants in Visual Perception of Binary Patterns: Supplementary Report
This study corroborates and extends an earlier conclusion of Harcum (1964a) that the discriminability of elements within tachistoscopic patterns was determined by an organizational process of memory,

It was predicted that there would be a relative decrease in errors for the isolated element in the tachistoscopic pattern, and this was the result.
