Are Age-Related Changes in Cognitive Function Driven by Age-Related Changes in Sensory Processing?
Published online: 20 December 2012© The Author(s) 2012. This article is published with open access at Springerlink.comAbstract Although there has been keen interest in the association among measures of sensory function and cognitive function for many...
A Severe Capacity Limit in the Consolidation of Orientation Information into Visual Short-Term Memory
Published online: 21 December 2012(Q> Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2012Abstract Previous research has suggested that two color patches can be consolidated into visual short-term memory (VSTM) via an unlimited parallel process. Here we examined whether...
Comparing Lexically Guided Perceptual Learning in Younger and Older Listeners
Published online: 25 January 2013© Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2013Abstract Numerous studies have shown that younger adults engage in lexically guided perceptual learning in speech perception. Here, we investigated whether older listeners are also able...
Evidence for Precategorical Extrinsic Vowel Normalization
Published online: 4 January 2013(©) Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2012Abstract Three experiments investigated whether extrinsic vowel normalization takes place largely at a categorical or a precategorical level of processing. Traditional vowel normalization...
Foreign Accent Strength and Listener Familiarity with an Accent Codetermine Speed of Perceptual Adaptation
Published online: 2 March 2013© Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2013Abstract We investigated how the strength of a foreign accent and varying types of experience with foreign-accented speech influence the recognition of accented words. In Experiment 1, native...
Gestalt Grouping Effects on Tactile Information Processing: When Touching Hands Override Spatial Proximity
Published online: 10 January 2013© Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2013Abstract Using a tactile variant of the negative-priming paradigm, we analyzed the influence of Gestalt grouping on the ability of participants to ignore distracting tactile information....
High-Intensity Sound Increases the Size of Visually Perceived Objects
Published online: 28 November 2012copy; Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2012Abstract The effect of audiovisual interactions on size perception has yet to be examined, despite its fundamental importance in daily life. Previous studies have reported that object...
Individual Differences within and across Attentional Blink Tasks Revisited
Published online: 15 January 2013(C) Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2013Abstract When the second of two targets (T2) is presented in close temporal proximity (within 200-500 ms) to the first (T1), the accuracy for reporting T2 is reduced relative to when...
Investigating the Stability of and Relationships among Global/local Processing Measures
Published online: 26 January 2013© Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2013Abstract Global/local stimuli have been used to estimate global processing biases in individuals and groups, as well as in response to various manipulations. Throughout the literature,...

Occluded Motion Alters Event Perception
Published online: 19 January 2013copy; Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2013Abstract We employed audiovisual stream/bounce displays, in which two moving objects with crossing trajectories are more likely to be perceived as bouncing off, rather than streaming...
On the Relativity of Relative Frequencies
Published online: 27 December 2012(Q> Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2012Abstract The most prominent models of numerical representation posit that numerical symbols are converted into a single internal, abstract representation prior to estimation and comparison...
Regional Accent Variation in the Shadowing Task: Evidence for a Loose Perception-Action Coupling in Speech
Published online: 24 January 2013(© Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2013Abstract We investigated the relation between action and perception in speech processing, using the shadowing task, in which participants repeat words they hear. In support of a tight...
Spatial Inattention Abolishes Voice Adaptation
Published online: 12 January 2013(Q> Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2013Abstract Adaptation to male voices causes a subsequent voice to be perceived as more female, and vice versa. Similar contrastive aftereffects have been reported for phonetic perception,...
Sustaining Visual Attention in the Face of Distraction: A Novel Gradual-Onset Continuous Performance Task
Published online: 9 January 2013© Springer Science+Business Media, LLC (outside the USA) 2013Abstract Sustained attention is a fundamental aspect of human cognition and has been widely studied in applied and clinical contexts. Despite a growing understanding...
Temporal Integration in Vision: Masking Can Aid Detection
Published online: 10 January 2013© Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2013Abstract Temporal form-part integration is the process whereby two discrete sets of stimuli, presented at different times, are perceived by the visual system as a single integrated percept....
To Count or Not to Count: The Effect of Instructions on Expecting a Break in Timing
Published online: 27 December 2012(Q> Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2012Abstract When a break is expected during a time interval production, longer intervals are produced as the break occurs later during the interval. This effect of break location was...
Tuning Characteristics of the Top-Down Attentional Setting
Published online: 9 January 2013© Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2012Abstract Previous studies of top-down attentional guidance have focused generally on the attentional prioritization of a single target feature. The present study focused on how the attentional...
Why Rare Targets Are Slow: Evidence That the Target Probability Effect Has an Attentional Locus
Published online: 12 March 2013© Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2013Abstract Target probability has a well-known effect on detection times: Targets that occur with lower probability are detected more slowly than their higherprobability counterparts. A long-standing...
