On what grounds can we conclude that an act of categorization is biased? In this chapter, it is contended that in the absence of objective norms of what categories actually are, biases in categorization can only be specified ...
Typicality, physiological activity and concept identification.
(Acta Psychologica, 1981)
The extent to which instances are good or poor examples of their categories (typicality) was varied in a concept identification (CI) task. Typicality was first established for the kind of artificial material traditionally ...
Physiological activity in an attribute learning task.
(Acta Psychologica, 1979)
The relationship between the amount of information processing in an Attribute Learning task and autonomic activity, measured by skin conductance response (SCR), was investigated. The amount of information processing was ...
Variation within categories.
(Acta Psychologica, 1984)
Two aspects of variation within categories, relating to different models of categorization, were investigated - frequency of dimensional values and typicality differences within values. The influence of range of typicality ...
Variation within categories
This thesis concerns the memory storage of category information. It presents an analysis of several aspects of variation among category exemplars. For each of these aspects, the effects on the way that a category is ...
Relationship between SCR, heart rate and information processing.
(Biological Psychology, 4(1), 41-49., 1976)
This study was designed to investigate the relationship between the amount of information processing in concept learning (CL) and autonomic physiological activity as measured by skin conductance response (SCR). Heart rate ...
