Repetition priming in visual search: Episodic retrieval, not feature priming
The results suggest that the priming pattern results from contact with an episodic memory representation of the previous trial, and the crossover interaction between repetition of one feature and another rules out Maljkovic and Nakayamas (1994) theory of independent potentiation of distinct feature representations.
Comparing Repetition Priming Effects in Words and Arithmetic Equations: Robust Priming Regardless of Color or Response Hand Change
The results show that the magnitude of RP was comparable between the two tasks and that changing the color or the response hand had a negligible effect on priming in either task, and indicate that priming does not vary with stimulus domain.
Mechanisms of subliminal response priming
A two-process model is proposed that suggests that non-target primes induce priming when they fit the current task intentions and when they are expected in the experimental setting, and that stimuli that match these “action triggers” directly activate the corresponding motor responses irrespective of their conscious identification.
What antipriming reveals about priming
Repetition priming of words, pseudowords, and nonwords.
The authors propose a parallel distributed processing (PDP) model based on the work of J. McClelland and D. Rumelhart (1985) as a way to understand the mechanisms potentially responsible for the pattern of findings, and instantiate a property that they believe is characteristic of implicit memory--that learning is primarilybased on the strengthening of connections between units that become active during the processing of a stimulus.
Visual antipriming: Evidence for ongoing adjustments of superimposed visual object representations
It is hypothesized that the representation of an object is strengthened, after it is identified, via small representational changes; this strengthening is responsible for repetition priming for that object, but it should also be responsible for antipriming of other objects that have representations superimposed with that of the primed object.
Varieties of Object Constancy
The data suggest the existence of (at least) two different visual codes, one non-retinotopic but viewer- Centred, the other object-centred.
Evidence for Complete Translational and Reflectional Invariance in Visual Object Priming
Performance for same-name, different-examplar images was worse than for identical images, indicating that not only was there priming from block one to block two, but that some of the priming was visual, rather than purely verbal or conceptual.
Long-term repetition priming with symmetrical polygons and words
The results indicate that response facilitation accruing from repeated exposure can be observed for stimuli that have no preexisting memory representations and suggest that perceptual factors contribute to repetition-priming effects.
