Rules and Heuristics during SentenceComprehension
Evidence from a Dual-task Brain Potential Study
Whether syntactic and semantic processes during sentence comprehension follow strict sets of rules or succumb to contextdependent heuristics was studied by recording event-related potentials in a dual-task design. In ...
Do Firms Use Derivatives to Reducetheir Dependence on External Capital Markets?
This study investigates if the use of derivatives by corporations is likely to affect their financing strategies. I find a strong positive relation between the minimum revenue guaranteed by hedging and investment ...
When Bees Hamper the Production of Honey
Lexical Interference From Associates in Speech Production
In this article, the authors explore semantic context effects in speaking. In particular, the authors investigate a marked discrepancy between categorically and associatively induced effects; only categorical relationships ...
Phonological Encoding Is Not Contingent on Semantic Feature Retrieval
An Electrophysiological Study on Object Naming
In the present study, the authors examined with event-related brain potentials whether phonological encoding in picture naming is mediated by basic semantic feature retrieval or proceeds independently. In a manual 2-choice ...
Brain-Potential Evidence for the Time Course of Access to BiographicalFacts and Names of Familiar Persons
On seeing familiar persons, biographical (semantic) information is typically retrieved faster and more accurately than name information. Serial stage models explain this pattern by suggesting that access to the name ...
Enhanced phonological facilitation and traces of concurrent word form activation in speech production
An object-naming study with multiple distractors
In the present study, we extended the classic picture–word interference paradigm by the presentation of multiple distractor words (Experiment 1) to reexamine whether the word forms of semantic alternatives receive ...
Dismissing lexical competition does not make speaking any easier
A rejoinder to Mahon and Caramazza (2009)
The swinging lexical network proposal (Abdel Rahman & Melinger, 2009a this issue) incorporates three assumptions that are independently motivated and pre-existing in the literature. We claim that the combination of these ...

Die Neuvermessung der Farbenwelt durch Ingo Nussbaumer
eine kleine Sensation
Als Goethe in seiner monumentalen Farbenlehre (1810) versuchte, Newtons Theorie des Lichts und der Farben anzugreifen, setzte er eine Methode ein, die er als Vermannigfachung der Erfahrungen bezeichnete: Er variierte ...
I recognize your face, but I can’t remember your name: A question of expertise?
In four experiments on the identification of familiar faces we reassessed a robust performance pattern—namely, the temporal advantage for retrieving biographical facts as compared to recalling proper names, which has ...
Seeing what we know and understand
How knowledge shapes perception
Expertise in object recognition, as in bird watching or X-ray specialization, is based on extensive perceptual experience and in-depth semantic knowledge. Although it has been shown that rich perceptual experience shapes ...
