Questio 27 2.5 / 2.5 points n The Bruce and Young model is to the interactive activation and competition (IAC) model as: Question options: name recognition is to face recognition. serial is to parallel. Questio 28 0 / 2.5 n points Feelings-of-knowing are an index of __________, and are generally __________. Question options: metacognition; accurate metacognition; inaccurate perceptual skill; accurate perceptual skill; inaccurate Questio 29 2.5 / 2.5 n points One similarity between connectionist network models of the brain and semantic network models of mind is that: Question options: both types of models would agree that excitatory connections underlie knowledge representation. both types of models would agree that related concepts are spatially close to one another. both types of models would agree that a given concept is represented by a single "node", or representation. both types of models would agree that connections between concepts are never inhibitory. Questio 30 2.5 / 2.5 points n Of the three categories, "fruit," "pear," and "Bartlett pear," the category "Bartlett pear" is a: Question options: family-resemblance category. superordinate level category. basic level category. subordinate level category. Questio 31 2.5 / 2.5 n points Consider your recognition of the letter "A" in this particular letter sequence: "ANT". Which of these statements describes the role of bottom-up processes? Question options: Your knowledge of the word "ant" facilitates recognition. Seeing a picture of an ant while looking at the word "ant" might facilitate recognition of the letter. Seeing the word "ant" in a sentence would facilitate your recognition of the "A". You recognize the letter "A" because of the two slanted lines and cross-line. Questio 32 2.5 / 2.5 points n In parts-based approaches to object recognition: Question options: the identification of the object is viewpoint dependent. the whole image of the object is examined holistically. the representation stored in memory is analogous to the object being recognized.

the orientation or the perspective of view on the object is not important. Questio 33 2.5 / 2.5 points n Keenan, McCutcheon, Freund, Gallup, Sanders, & Pascual-Leone (1999) investigated self-recognition by showing a "face movie" in which the participant's face gradually morphed into that of a celebrity.

Responses were faster when made with the __________ hand, indicating a __________ hemisphere advantage in self-recognition. Question options: left; left left; right right; right right; left Questio 34 2.5 / 2.5 n points Blais, Jack, Scheepers, Fiset, and Caldara (2008) investigated cross-cultural differences (Western Caucasian vs. East Asian) in face recognition, and found that: Question options: East Asians were superior in face recognition. Western Caucasians were superior in face recognition. East Asians tended to focus on the eyes and surrounding areas, Western Caucasians on the nose region. Western Caucasians tended to focus on the eyes and surrounding areas, East Asians on the nose region. Questio 35 2.5 / 2.5 points n The mechanisms involved in face recognition: Question options: seem akin to those proposed by the image-based views of object recognition. seem akin to those proposed by the parts-based views of object recognition. are not disrupted by face rotation. seem to operate at a level similar to the basic level of categorization. Questio 36 0 / 2.5 points n Research on haptic exploration and exploratory procedures reveals that: Question options: the longer EPs take, the less breadth they have. material properties of objects (e.g., temperature) are easier to ascertain than geometric properties (e.g., shape). the most informative exploratory procedure is static contact. tactile object recognition is faster than visual object recognition.
