Third, the notion that different visual features are processed independently or separately seems attractive in view of the evidence that distinct areas of the visual cortex are specialised for processing different features (Zeki, 1993, see Chapter 2). The multi-store model is shown in Figure 6.1. The experimenter’s rule is that the numbers are “an ascending sequence”. The relevance of these rules to apparent motion was shown using displays like those shown in Figure 3.8.

Research also examines developmental disorders of communication, including autism spectrum disorders and dyslexia. Her research is funded by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada. Their fundamental principle of perceptual organisation was the law of Prägnanz: “Of several geometrically possible organisations that one will actually occur which possesses the best, simplest and most stable shape” (Koffka, 1935, p. 138).

That is, even though some highly typical instances are considered by most people to be category members and less typical instances are considered to be non-members of the category, between these two extremes people differ on whether an object is a member of the category and are also inconsistent in their judgements.

Relevant evidence was obtained by Shallice and Warrington (1970). In addition, or in opposition, to employing empirical and deductive methods, some—especially clinical and counseling psychologists—at times rely upon symbolic interpretation and other inductive techniques. According to Wheeler et al. (1997), there is an important distinction between autonoetic or self-knowing awareness (found in episodic memory) and noetic or knowing awareness (found in semantic memory).
