  • Mental models, sentential reasoning, and illusory inferences
    • Abstract: 2006
      Publication year: 2006
      Source:Advances in Psychology, Volume 138

      This chapter describes how individuals reason with sentential connectives, such as “if”, “or”, and “and”. They do not have a “truth functional” semantics for these connectives but rather they construct models of the possibilities compatible with sentences in which the connectives occur. Human working memory has a limited processing capacity, and so individuals aim to construct only a single model at a time, and to represent only those clauses in the premises that hold in each possibility. One unexpected consequence of the theory emerged from its computer implementation. Certain inferences should yield systematic fallacies if reasoners use mental models. The chapter explains this prediction and reports some studies corroborating the occurrence of these “illusory” inferences. No one has yet devised an account of them on the basis of another theory.

  • Interaction of knowledge and working memory in reasoning about relations
    • Abstract: 2006
      Publication year: 2006
      Source:Advances in Psychology, Volume 138

      This chapter defends the thesis that relational reasoning is based on an interaction of knowledge represented in semantic and episodic long-term memory on the one hand and temporary information maintained in working memory on the other hand. Three lines of evidence relevant to this interaction are considered. First, it is shown that reasoners seem to have a preference for a visuo-spatial representation of the temporary mental models when this representational format is advantageous because there is a need to represent structural information or because the relations are easily represented in this format. The second line of evidence shows that apart from believability of the premises and believability of the conclusions, also believability of the model(s) described by the premises plays a role. In a third part, transitive (order relations) and intransitive relational problems (genealogical relations) are compared in order to clarify the role of constraints on the relational representations on reasoning. The results obtained in these three lines of investigation support the view that (relational) reasoning is based on a tight interplay of knowledge representations in long-term memory and temporary models in working memory. Some discussion is devoted to the possibility that this interaction is mediated by Baddeley's concept of episodic buffer.

  • Mental models in learning situations

      Learning situations where phenomena are explained require the construction and successful manipulation of mental models. In these situations the models have the function to facilitate simplifcation and visualization of the modeled phenomena and the construction of analogies. This chapter reprots recent developments in research on model-centered learning with a focus on design-based modeling in the context of exploratory learning and guided discovery learning. Results of two large empirical studies on mental models in multimedia learning and discovery learning are reported.

  • Resolving valid multiple model inferences activates a left hemisphere

    • Abstract: 2006

      Resolving multiple model syllogisms is more difficult than resolving single model syllogisms. Mental model theory predicts that visuospatial processing is critical for resolving syllogisms, and that demands on visuospatial processing systems will increase as reasoning problems become more difficult. An alternative account, the mixed-model approach, postulates that linguistic representations may augment visuospatial representations in multiple model problems. To test these competing hypotheses, we reorganized published archival fMRI data into single and multiple model problems, and reanalyzed it along this dimension. The critical comparison of multiple model versus single model problems revealed activation in both the left superior parietal spatial system and left frontal and temporal language areas, indicating that as reasoning problems become more difficult, reasoners augment any visuospatial model that they may have constructed with linguistic representations. This result is consistent with the mixed-model approach.

  • A neuro-cognitive theory of relational reasoning with mental models and
           visual images
    • Abstract: 2006
      Publication year: 2006
      Source:Advances in Psychology, Volume 138

      Recent brain imaging studies have provided evidence that the parietal cortex plays a key role in reasoning based on mental models, which are supposed to be of abstract spatial nature. However, these studies have also shown concurrent activation of visual association cortices which have often been interpreted as evidence for the role of visual mental imagery in reasoning. The present chapter resolves these inconsistencies. I argue that visual brain areasare only involved if the problem information is easy to visualize and when this information must be processed and maintained in visual working memory. A regular reasoning process, however, does not involve visual imagesbut more abstract spatial representations—spatial mental models—held in parietal cortices. Only these spatial representations are crucial for the genuine reasoning processes.

  • Pictures, perception, and mental models
    • Abstract: 2006
      Publication year: 2006
      Source:Advances in Psychology, Volume 138

      The main point of this paper is to consider the way space is perceived in pictures and in “reality” and the question of whether mental models are a good means in explaining how space is visually perceived. Real or physical space is presumed to be (locally) Euclidean. Some kinds of pictures—e.g. pictures in perspective—are lawfully connected to the depicted scene so that the (Euclidean) geometry of that scene is preserved in these pictures. Following Johnson-Laird, visual perception is based on the construction of a partially analogical mental model. Therefore, as I will show, the geometry of a mental model representing the spatial layout of a scene in the physical world (or of a picture of such a scene) should also be Euclidean. However, at least since the famous experiments of Blumenfeld in 1913 it seems clear that our phenomenal or visual space is not Euclidean. How does this fit together' Can it be that the different cues which are involved in the perception of spatial arrangements are not modeled in a Euclidean way, but that the model in toto is (nearly) Euclidean' Is such a model built up by using “modified weak fusion”'

  • Emotion, decision, and mental models

      Source:Advances in Psychology, Volume 138

      Recent research has shown that rational, decisions may require the participation of emotions. It would follow that an adequate model of real-world decision-making has to account for emotions in some way or other. Due to their multi-modal character and because they preserve the structure of the objects or states of affairs they represent, mental models are particularly well-suited for this undertaking. Starting with a sketch of the underlying understanding of mental representation and emotion, the impact of emotion on cognition and decision, will be outlined. These considerations provide the basis for a number of constraints for a theory of mental representation. It will turn out that, unlike a symbolic theory of mental representation, the theory of mental models does justice to these constraints.

  • Language processing: Construction of mental models or more'
    • Abstract: 2006
      Publication year: 2006
      Source:Advances in Psychology, Volume 138

      Language comprehension is often seen as the incremental update of a mental model of the situation described in the text. With every word a reader or listener processes, the model is adjusted to fit the linguistic input. This conception of language comprehension sounds very plausible at first sight but its scientific utility strongly depends on the definition of a mental model. In this paper, we will discuss different definitions of mental models for text comprehension, as well as the way these models may have an impact on comprehension processes. A second distinction we will discuss is an “eliminative” view of mental modeling compared to a “hybrid” view. An eliminative view denies the relevance of more linguistic levels of processing below the construction of a mental model; claiming that most if not all processing phenomena can be explained without reference to syntactic or semantic levels of representation. From a more hybrid perspective, inspection of a mental model is one among several factors influencing linguistic processing. We will argue for this latter perspective. (We are, of course, not arguing againsts every possible variety of an eliminative view, but just against some that have been and still are very prominent in the psycholinguistic literature. So there surely are conceivable variants that are compatible with our objections.)

      The focus of this paper is the relation between Steven Kosslyn's visual mental images and Johnson-Laird's mental models. Knauff et al. presented empirical evidence and a challenging argument for the hypothesis that in fact “visual imagery impedes reasoning.” I argue that these results may look embarrassing for pictorialists, but closer inspection suggests that they are actually harmless. I argue that the presented evidence fails to show that imagery impedes reasoning. I present some objections to the explanation proposed by Knauff and Johnson-Laird by pointing out some terminological and conceptual problems. Afterwards, I sketch an alternative explanation, which is more pictorialist in spirit. In fact, even from the view of pictorialism, the results are not as surprising as they may seem at first blush. Finally, I claim that mental models and visual images are not as different as typically assumed.

  • Mental models as objectual representations
    • Abstract: 2006
      Publication year: 2006
      Source:Advances in Psychology, Volume 138

      In the debates of cognitive psychologists about the nature and cognitive role of mental models, the demarcation of such models and other types of representation plays a critical role. The purpose of this paper is to make the differences between kinds of mental representation sufficiently precise. Initially, I will isolate a distinction, largely overlooked in philosophical accounts of mental representation, but crucial for an understanding of the conception of a mental model—the distinction between objectual and non-objectual representations. I will draw further support for the distinction from two different attitudes involving a propositional representation a cognizer can have. As a result, I will criticize the contention that perceptual information processing requires the use of mental models. Finally, I will show that typical empirical results, interpreted in terms of mental models theory, also support the objectual/non-objectual distinction. Vice versa, the distinction can be utilized to better interpret these results.

  • The perceptual nature of mental models
    • Abstract: 2006
      Publication year: 2006
      Source:Advances in Psychology, Volume 138

      In the first comprehensive formulation of the theory of mental models, Johnson-Laird proposes several constraints on any psychological theory of reasoning. He argues that his theory fulfills these constraints due to two properties of mental models: structure preservation and naturalness. However, during the elaboration of his theory over the last decades, especially the central property of naturalness was not paid much attention to. It hence has to be questioned if the theory in its present form still possesses the explanatory power originally claimed. In this chapter, I will outline an interpretation of structure preservation and naturalness within a philosophical framework. This leads to the claim that mental models are structures partially isomorphic to what they represent and that they contain exclusively perceptual relations. I will close with some proposals for refining the theory of mental models, such that the originally proposed constraints can be met (again). Only this refined version can stand as a true alternative to theories of mental logics.
