Visual Recognition and Priming of Incomplete Objects: The Influence of Stimulus and Task Demands

Show Summary Details

This chapter suggests that the demands on processing that are placed by the particular stimuli that are processed and by the particular tasks that are performed play crucial roles in determining which subsystem recognizes objects and supports repetition priming effects. The recognition and priming of incomplete objects in particular should be informative for testing this possibility. Thus, the chapter summarizes evidence from studies of priming for incomplete objects that support the hypothesized influence of stimulus and task demands.

Keywords: incomplete objects; visual recognition; priming; stimulus; task demands; visual-form subsystems
