Graph-Theoretic Properties of Networks Based on Word Association Norms: Implications for Models of Lexical Semantic Memory
The results suggest that participants switch between a contextual representation and an associative network when generating free associations, and that the role that each of these representations may play in lexical semantic memory. Expand
The Representation of Coordinate Relations in Lexical Semantic Memory
Two experiments examined the size of the typicality effect for true items in a category verification task as a function of the type of false item used, showing that the pattern of results for coordinate items reflected semantic processing, not simply task difficulty. Expand
Vantage Theory Meets Cognitive Psychology: A Synthesis with Frame Theory.
Abstract The structure of categorical mental representation is widely discussed in cognitive psychology. Barsalou’s frame theory, which assumes that categories are represented by values, attributes,Expand

Time-course studies of semantic verification are reviewed, discussed, and reinterpreted to suggest that semantic memory is structured on at least three levels and specific models of the intermediate (macrostructural) level are discussed and compared. Expand
Process complexity in semantic memory
Are sentences verified by a lone computational mechanism, or does this mechanism race in parallel with a generally faster search of semantic memory? Rejecting either the single- or dual-processExpand
The number of video examples and the dispersion of examples as instructional design variables in tea
It was found that narrowly dispersed examples had an effect on the development of conceptual knowledge, whereas widely dispersed examples stimulated the developmentof procedural knowledge. Expand
A comparison of hyponym and synonym decisions
Is class inclusion (hyponymy) a more primitive or simpler semantic relation than synonymy? This question was addressed by comparing the time required to identify examples of the two relations in aExpand
Development and transfer of automatic processing.
Results indicated that learning occurred in the absence of consistency at lower levels of task description as long as higher level consistencies existed in the task, but the asymptotic level of this learning was modulated by the consistency with which conjunctions of task components were mapped to decisions.

Concept models and concept functions: Inference from incomplete information☆
In delayed tests in which subjects had to identify the missing parts from partial figures of exemplars, responses appeared to be based on relational information rather than on information about separate feature-variables (independent-cues), which could have implications for concept models and concept functions. Expand
Retrieval and comparison processes in part--whole decisions.
Undergraduate students were presented with word pairs and timed as they decided whether one word named part of the thing named by the other word supported a hybrid model of part-whole decisions that includes directed retrieval of relational knowledge from memory and a comparison process. Expand

People are often overconfident in evaluating the correctness of their knowledge. The present studies investigated the possibility that assessment of confidence is biased by attempts to justify one'sExpand

Retrieval From Semantic Memory
The introduction presented the main experimental paradigms and results found in the literature on semantic memory as well as an outline of the most important models. Expand
