The same set of Ss was run In an LT (single late target letter followed an earher multiletter display) and an ET (single early target preceded a later multiletter display) condition. On one-half the trials, the multiletter set included the target. and on the other half, the target was absent. The task of S was to push the "yes" ("no") button if the target was present (absent), and reaction times were recorded. The most plausible processing model assumed that LT comparisons took place in a… CONTINUE READING
