Example text

Gretchen Kambe, Keith Rayner, and Susan Duffy (2001) tested the distinction between local and global context in lexical processing. They used paragraphs rather than the customary one or two sentences to see how the larger Empirical Evidence 39 context enabled subjects to disambiguate ambiguous words. They defined context in two ways: the global context was the topic sentence that provides a general idea of what is going to be discussed, and the local context provides specific information about ideas discussed in the paragraph.

Yes, if ‘features or elements’ can be taken to unambiguously refer to more or less well-formed gestalt content outside the theme or focus, rather than to formative constituents of the theme. Barnes and Jones (2000, 267) Empirical Evidence 31 state that they are examining the influence of “serial context” on time judgments. When the target is achieved it is achieved relevant to a particular context which the experimenters control. So without trumpeting the radical break from the usual narrowness of the definition of attention, this sort of research shows at least that there is a contextual dimension outside the focus in attending.

Some attempts to make sense of non-focal processes in attending (which is typically called “inattention”) lead to very unusual hypotheses. Yehoshua Tsal and Lilach Shalev (1996) have proposed that the “unattended visual field” is composed of attentional receptive fields (ARFs). ” What kind of work is the word “perceived” doing in this statement? Why is this not contextual (or marginal) consciousness? A casual observer cannot help but notice that although ARFs are supposed to be part of the “unattended” visual field, the A in the acronym stands for attentional.
