  • Abstract art paintings, global image properties, and verbal descriptions:
           An empirical and computational investigation
    • Abstract: Publication date: January 2020Source: Acta Psychologica, Volume 202Author(s): Gregor U. Hayn-Leichsenring, Yoed N. Kenett, Katharina Schulz, Anjan Chatterjee While global image properties (GIPs) relate to preference ratings in many categories of visual stimuli, this relationship is typically not seen for abstract art paintings. Using computational network science and empirical methods, we further investigated GIPs and subjective preferences. First, we replicated the earlier observation that GIPs do not relate to preferences for abstract art. Next, we estimated the network structure of abstract art paintings using two approaches: the first was based on verbal descriptions and the second on GIPs. We examined the extent to which network measures computed from these two networks (1) related to preference for abstract art paintings and (2) determined affiliation of images to specific art styles. Only semantic-based network predicted the subjective preference ratings and art style. Finally, preference and GIPs differed for sub-groups of abstract art paintings. Our results demonstrate the importance of verbal descriptors in evaluating abstract art, and that it is not useful in empirical aesthetics to treat abstract art paintings as a single category.
       
  • Probability of target recollection varies with target-lure relatedness
           under the dual process signal detection model
    • Abstract: Publication date: October 2019Source: Acta Psychologica, Volume 201Author(s): Stephen Dopkins, Darin Galyer The ROC function plots hit and false alarm rates against one another. For item recognition the z-transformed ROC (Z-ROC) function is typically linear with slope less than one. The Dual Process Signal Detection (DPSD) and Unequal Variance Signal Detection (UVSD) models see the slope as reflecting the ratio of the lure and target evidence standard deviations. The DPSD model in addition sees the slope as co-varying with estimates of target recollection probability (R). This follows because the slope decreases with increases in the target evidence standard deviation which in turn increases with increases in the numbers of high evidence recollection items. However our results suggest that the lure evidence standard deviation, and thus the Z-ROC slope, can vary with factors seemingly unrelated to target recollection, posing problems for DPSD estimates of R. In word recognition the standard deviation of lure confidence ratings and the slope of the z-ROC function were larger with semantically related than unrelated lures. When the data for related and unrelated lures were fit separately, the standard two-parameter DPSD model, implausibly, set R lower for related than unrelated lures. The UVSD model, more plausibly, set the lure evidence standard deviation larger for related than unrelated lures.
       
  • The characteristics of face configural effect in illiterates and literates
    • Abstract: Publication date: October 2019Source: Acta Psychologica, Volume 201Author(s): Xiaohua Cao, Qi Yang, Ping Zhong, Changming Chen Literacy acquisition can modulate the way we process visual words and language. However, little is known about its function in reshaping how we process non-linguistic materials, like faces. In this study, we explored this question by comparing the facial recognition skills of illiterate and literate adults in China. Our results showed that illiterates were less sensitive to changes in spatial configuration among key features in upright faces when stimuli were presented simultaneously. The differences in sensitivity of spatial configuration between the literates and illiterates were also observed in house processing. These results thus provide evidence that literacy acquisition during childhood could reshape configural processing.
       
  • Associative learning of response inhibition affects perceived duration in
           a subsequent temporal bisection task
    • Abstract: Publication date: October 2019Source: Acta Psychologica, Volume 201Author(s): Paul Sowman, Jordan Wehrman Interval timing, the ability to discern the duration of an event, is integral to appropriately navigating the world, from crossing the road to catching a ball. Several features of an event can affect its perceived duration, for example it has previously been shown that a large stimulus is perceived to last longer than a small stimulus. In the current article, participants performed either a Go/No-Go or variable foreperiod task prior to performing a temporal bisection task. In both the Go/No-Go and variable foreperiod tasks, participants learned an association between a particular response and a particular stimulus. Subsequently, the perceived duration of these stimuli was tested in a temporal bisection task. Our findings indicated that associating a stimulus with response inhibition (i.e. a No-Go stimulus) decreased perceived duration compared to a stimulus associated with a response (a Go stimulus). Associating a stimulus with either a short or long foreperiod, on the other hand, did not affect perceived duration. We relate this finding back to the coding efficiency theory and the processing principle. A No-Go stimulus requires more cognitive processing than a Go stimulus and would thus be predicted to increase, rather than decrease, perceived duration in both these time perception theories. Finally, we suggest how our findings might be used in future investigations of interval timing.
       
  • Directed forgetting in problem solving
    • Abstract: Publication date: October 2019Source: Acta Psychologica, Volume 201Author(s): Tobias Tempel, Christian Frings In two experiments, we investigated intentional forgetting of problem-solving routines by adapting the list method of directed forgetting. In Experiment 1, participants practiced solving water-jar problems (Luchins, 1942). After working on a first series of problems that all could be solved by the same formula, one group of participants was instructed to forget the so-far presented items because these, allegedly, had only served as a warm-up, whereas another group did not receive a forget instruction. After practicing a different routine in a second series of problems, participants solved test problems that either could be solved by the formula previously practiced in the first or in the second series of problems. All test problems alternatively could be solved by a more direct formula. The forget instruction significantly reduced the number of test problems solved by the formula of the first series of practice problems. In Experiment 2, participants subsequently practiced two solution formulas in two series of to-be-solved anagrams. Here, a forget instruction regarding the first series of practice anagrams reduced solution speed for test anagrams that had to be solved by the same formula as the to-be-forgotten practice anagrams. Thus, in both experiments, participants relied less on a practiced routine after they had been instructed to intentionally forget the episode of acquiring that routine.

    • Abstract: Publication date: October 2019Source: Acta Psychologica, Volume 201Author(s): Katarzyna Patro, Anke Huckauf Visual stimuli presented in peripheries can be barely recognized when they are surrounded by flankers (crowding). The target-flanker interference can be asymmetrical, and this asymmetry depends on a stimulus type. In particular, recognition of a letter or a number is more disturbed by the presence of a leftward flanker, reflecting the direction of reading. So far, such reading-related asymmetry has been observed with visual recognition tasks. In the following studies, we used numbers as stimuli to examine whether the leftward asymmetry in crowding extends to other levels of information processing, i.e. whether it is present when more abstract, semantic features are extracted. We presented participants with numerical triplets in the left or right visual field, and asked them to classify the middle number according to its magnitude (Experiment 1), physical characteristics (Experiment 2) or parity (Experiment 3). We observed that the leftward flanker interfered stronger with the target than the rightward flanker, but only when magnitude and physical characteristics were classified. Our findings suggest that the leftward asymmetry in crowding extends up to the semantic level of number processing, but only selectively, i.e. when a certain sort of information (magnitude) is extracted.
       
  • The contents of visual working memory delay the perceived offset of
           matching visual stimuli
    • Abstract: Publication date: October 2019Source: Acta Psychologica, Volume 201Author(s): Yi Pan, Zheyu Zhang, Wuheng Zuo Previous research suggests that the perception of stimulus onset can be accelerated by a match between the contents of visual working memory and the stimulus presented alone in the peripheral visual field. This onset acceleration effect might contribute to previously reported effects of working memory on perceived stimulus duration. However, it remains possible that the contents of visual working memory may also modulate the offset perception of matching visual stimuli, thereby contributing to the modulation of duration perception by working memory. The present study directly tested this possibility by using a simple reaction time task to assess the effect of visual working memory on perceived stimulus offset. Participants were asked to maintain a sample stimulus in working memory and subsequently had to respond to the offset of a single visual target. Across three experiments, we showed that the offset response was reliably slower when the target matched the sample held in visual working memory, as compared with when the target did not. This effect was not likely attributed to the mechanism of repetition priming from the presentation of the sample, because we failed to observe a priming effect either when the sample was only passively viewed without working memory demands or when the sample was initially encoded into memory but did not need to be actively maintained in mind by the time the offset target appeared. The findings provide direct evidence indicating that active maintenance of information in visual working memory delays the perceived offset of matching visual stimuli.
       
  • Dyad training protocols and the development of a motor sequence
           representation
    • Abstract: Publication date: October 2019Source: Acta Psychologica, Volume 201Author(s): Stefan Panzer, Thomas Haab, Matthias Massing, Christina Pfeifer, Charles H. Shea The purpose of the experiment was to determine the extent to which observation and the inter-trial dialogue in a dyad training protocol enhance the development of a movement sequence representation. The task was to reproduce a 1300 ms spatial–temporal pattern of elbow extension/flexion movements. An inter-manual transfer design with a retention test and two effector transfer tests was used. The mirror transfer test required the same motor pattern of homologous muscle activation and a sequence of joint angles as experienced during the acquisition phase, and the non-mirror transfer test required the same visual-spatial pattern as practiced during acquisition. Participants (N = 40) were randomly assigned to one of four groups (50 practice acquisition trials): a dyad training group where two participants alternated between physical and observational practice and permitting an inter-trial dialogue, a dyad training group where two participants alternated between physical practice and permitting a dialogue without observation, a dyad training group where two participants alternated between physical and observational practice without a dialogue, and an individual practice control group where one participant learned the movement sequence. The practice duration was for all participants identical. The results indicated that participants involved in the dyad training protocols with either observation and/or the inter-trial dialogue developed a motor representation of the movement sequence.
       
  • Dissociating lexical and sublexical contributions to transposed-word
           effects
    • Abstract: Publication date: October 2019Source: Acta Psychologica, Volume 201Author(s): Felipe Pegado, Jonathan Grainger When two sequences of words are presented successively for 400 ms each, it is harder to decide that the two sequences differ when the difference is generated by transposing two words compared with a condition where the same two words are replaced by different words. Interestingly, this transposed-word effect is obtained even when the first sequence is ungrammatical. One account of the effect seen with ungrammatical sequences is that participants detect mismatching letters rather than words. Under this account, the migration of letter identities across adjacent words would make it harder to judge the transposed-word condition as being different. The present experiment put this account to test by comparing transposition effects to sequences of words vs. pseudowords. We hypothesized that if same-different judgments are made on the basis of sublexical orthographic information only, then we should observe similar effects for words and pseudowords. Although transposition effects were found with pseudoword stimuli, the effects were significantly reduced compared to word sequences. This suggests that the noisy bottom-up allocation of word identities to locations along a line of text is one key mechanism driving transposed-word effects.
       
  • The influence of self-referential stimuli on duration perception
    • Abstract: Publication date: October 2019Source: Acta Psychologica, Volume 201Author(s): Qingqing Li, Shiqing Song, Li Pan, Xiting Huang, Hong Chen Previous studies have shown that stimuli with subjective salience could affect duration estimation. Although self-referential stimuli possess high biological and social importance, no prior study has examined whether and how self-referential information affects duration perception. Experiment 1 used the temporal bisection task to investigate participants’ duration estimation of the presentation of their own name versus familiar and unfamiliar names. The results showed that participants overestimated the duration of their own name and became more sensitive to duration perception in such trials when compared with stranger’s names. Given the specificity of personal name, Experiment 2 used two types of personality-trait words in self-referential and friend-referential manner as the targets of duration perception. The duration of self-referential negative trait words was perceived to be longer relative to friend-referential negative trait words. The mechanism underlying the subjective time dilation effect of self-referential information possibly involves the engagement of increased attentional resources, which could allow the individual to preserve a certain level of stability and positivity of self-knowledge.
       
  • Is holistic processing of written words modulated by phonology'
    • Abstract: Publication date: October 2019Source: Acta Psychologica, Volume 201Author(s): Paulo Ventura, Tânia Fernandes, Isabel Leite, Alexandre Pereira, Alan C.-N. Wong Holistic processing, a hallmark of face processing, has been shown for written words, signaled by the word composite effect. Fluent readers find it harder to focus on one half of a written word (e.g., the first syllable of a CV.CV word) while ignoring the other half (e.g., the second syllable), especially when the two halves are aligned rather than misaligned. Given the linguistic nature of written words, in the present study, we examined whether the word composite effect is modulated by phonology. In Experiment 1, participants saw two sequentially presented CV.CV words and had to decide if the left half (first syllable) was the same or not, regardless of the right half. The word pairs were either phonologically consistent (univocal orthography to phonology mapping; e.g., TI is always /ti/ in Portuguese) or inconsistent (orthography can map into different phonological representations; e.g., CA can correspond to /ka/ or /kɐ/). The word composite effect was found for phonologically consistent words but not for phonologically inconsistent words. In Experiment 2, timing of trial events was reduced to test whether the influence of phonology was fast and automatic. Similar to what was found in Experiment 1, the word composite effect was found only for phonologically consistent words. The faster trial events in Experiment 2 rendered it less likely that the influence of phonology in word composite effect is merely a result of strategic processing. These findings suggest that holistic processing of visual words is modulated by fast and automatic activation of lexical phonological representations.
       
  • Tactile aesthetics: Textures that we like or hate to touch
    • Abstract: Publication date: October 2019Source: Acta Psychologica, Volume 201Author(s): Jenny Faucheu, Benjamin Weiland, Mihaela Juganaru-Mathieu, Arnaud Witt, Pierre-Henri Cornuault Considering object identification and recognition as well as human interaction with objects, texture as a surface property plays a crucial role. A deeper understanding of tactile aesthetics can be useful in the applied field such as in product designs that appeal more to our senses and that are more effective in eliciting certain emotional responses from a potential consumer. In the present study, behavioral experiments were performed using unfamiliar custom-made dot pattern stimuli under two complementary questionings. The first question focused on the tactile perceptive attributes related to topographical characteristics of the textures exhibited by the material surfaces. The second question focused on the texture pleasantness related both to the perceptive attributes and to the topographical characteristics of the textures. The perspective of this work opens on complementary fields of research such as neurosciences to determine the brain mechanisms in the processing of the pleasantness of tactile stimuli.
