Incomplete flow diagram of information processing hypothesized to mediate the effects of a communication from another on an
overt response to the other. Arrows denote pathways through which
information flows between memory and processing units and from
one processing unit to the other. Circles and ovals denote processing
units, and squares and rectangles denote memory or temporary storage units.
here. As work progresses, a viable conceptualization of information processing
in interpersonal communication may become a reality.
The writing of this chapter and much of the research described was supported by
grant MH 3-8585 from the National Institute of Mental Health. Many of the ideas
conveyed, and the empirical work bearing on them, were developed in collaboration with Robert Fuhrman, Lee Budesheim, and Alan Lambert. Appreciation is
extended to the University of Illinois Social Cognition Group for stimulation and
criticisms of many of the ideas expressed.
