Categorization of Environmental Sounds
AbstractThis paper investigates the way in which people categorize environmental sounds in their everyday lives. Previous research has shown that isolated environmental sounds are categorized on the basis of high-level semantic features when the sounds...
Identification Variability as a Measure of Loudness: An Application to Gender Differences
AbstractIt is well known that discrimination response variability increases with stimulus intensity, closely related to Weber's Law. It is also an axiom that sensation magnitude increases with stimulus intensity. Following earlier researchers such as...

AbstractAlthough lexicosemantic deficits are not typically seen in older adults, some studies indicate that age-related changes in semantic processing may occur. We had groups of older and younger adults perform speeded lexical decision on mass (e.g.,...
Location Serves as a Conditional Cue When Harp Seals (Pagophilus Groenlandicus) Solve Object Discrimination Reversal Problems
AbstractWe examined the capacity of harp seals (Pagophilus groenlandicus) to use spatial context (i.e., their tank) as a conditional cue to solve a two-choice visual discrimination reversal task. Seals were trained to touch one of two 3D objects. Two...
Memory for Object Location: A Span Study in Children
AbstractThe aim of the present study was to analyze the developmental changes in three spatial processes, namely, in positional reconstruction involving the retention of spatial locations per se (Positional encoding task), in the assignment of objects...
