Aging and the Discrimination of 3-D Shape from Motion and Binocular Disparity
Published online: 6 July 2012© Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2012Abstract Two experiments evaluated the ability of younger and older adults to visually discriminate 3-D shape as a function of surface coherence. The coherence was manipulated by embedding...
An Examination of the Processing Capacity of Features in the Thatcher Illusion
Published online: 16 June 2012©Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2012Abstract Detection of the Thatcher illusion (Thompson, Perception, 9:483-484, 1980) is widely upheld as being dependent on configural processing (e.g., Bartlett & Searcy, Cognitive Psychology,...
Apparent Depth of Pictures Reflected by a Mirror: The Plastic Effect
Published online: 13 July 2012© Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2012Abstract We investigated the plastic effect in picture perception, in which the apparent depth of a picture is increased when it is reflected by a mirror. The plastic effect was well known...
Base on Balls for the Chapman Strategy: Reassessing Brouwer, Brenner, and Smeets (2002)
Published online: 22 June 2012© The Author(s) 2012. This article is published with open access at Springerlink.comAbstract A true understanding of skilled behavior includes the identification of the information that underlies the perception- action cycle...
Breaking through the Attentional Window: Capture by Abrupt Onsets versus Color Singletons
Published online: 18 July 2012© Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2012Abstract Theeuwes (Psychonomic Bulletin & Review 11:65-70, 2004) proposed that stimulus-driven capture occurs primarily for salient stimuli that fall within the observer's attentional...
Capture of Kinesthesis by a Competing Cutaneous Input
Published online: 3 June 2012© Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2012Abstract In four experiments, blindfolded participants were presented with pairs of stimuli simultaneously, one to each index finger. Participants moved one index finger, which was presented...
Fear Makes You Stronger: Responding to Feared Animal Targets in Visual Search
Published online: 29 June 2012© Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2012Abstract To investigate whether fear affects the strength with which responses are made, 12 animal-fearful individuals (five snake fearful and seven spider fearful) were instructed to decide...
Feature Binding across Different Visual Dimensions
Published online: 12 June 2012© Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2012Abstract The human brain represents different kinds of visual feature dimensions in different ways. For example, surface features exhibit some properties that are very different from contour...
Fire Drill: Inattentional Blindness and Amnesia for the Location of Fire Extinguishers
Published online: 8 August 2012© Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2012Abstract Fire extinguishers can save lives and are placed in locations thatmake themeasily accessible and in plain view in case of an emergency. However, despite having viewed these bright...
Frequency of the First Feature in Action Sequences Influences Feature Binding
Published online: 10 July 2012© Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2012Abstract We investigated whether binding among perception and action feature codes is a preliminary step toward creating a more durable memory trace of an action event. If so, increasing the...

Perceptual and Motor Inhibition of Return: Components or Flavors?
Published online: 20 June 2012© Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2012Abstract The most common evidence for inhibition of return (IOR) is the robust finding of increased response times to targets that appear at previously cued locations following a cue-target...
The Closer the Better: Hand Proximity Dynamically Affects Letter Recognition Accuracy
Published online: 10 July 2012© The Author(s) 2012. This article is published with open access at Springerlink.comAbstract A growing literature has suggested that processing of visual information presented near the hands is facilitated. In this study,...
The Functional Role of Alternation Advantage in the Sequence Effect of Symbolic Cueing with Nonpredictive Arrow Cues
Published online: 21 June 2012© Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2012Abstract Previous studies have shown that attention orienting is influenced by the orienting processes of previous trials in a spatial-cueing paradigm. This sequence effect is due to the fact...
The Hands Shield Attention from Visual Interference
Published online: 2 August 2012© Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2012Abstract Recent investigations have revealed enhanced processing of information that is presented within hand space. A potential consequence of such enhancement could be that simultaneous...
Working Memory Load Can Both Improve and Impair Selective Attention: Evidence from the Navon Paradigm
Published online: 8 August 2012© Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2012Abstract Selective attention to relevant targets has been shown to depend on the availability of working memory (WM). Under conditions of high WM load, processing of irrelevant distractors...
