Effects of spaces on report from tachistoscopically presented letter strings
- 90 Downloads
The introduction of spaces into tachistoscopically presented strings of letters produced substantial increases in reportability of letters adjacent to the spaces. As in the detection experiment of Shaw (1969), a space had a greater effect on a letter preceding than on a letter following it in the instructed read-out order. However, a similar asymmetry appeared on the central-peripheral dimension in the visual field. Position of a letter in the read-out order and number of adjacent characters interacted strongly with the central-peripheral gradient.
