The word superiority effect as an interaction of top-down processes in visual search
Faculty of Psychology
The present paper describes a proposed study that will examine the interrelationships of top-down processes in visual search using the word superiority effect. More precisely, the research will be concerned with two types of top-down influences upon the processing of target stimuli. One of them relies upon the observer's knowledge and structural units of his/her memory activated by incoming stimuli, whereas the other is represented by subjective strategies and functional units of the observer’s perceptual activity.
