Abstract : Two papers emerged from this project during the period. One major paper, 'Reconstructing the Past: Category Effects in Estimation', will appear in Volume 28 of The Psychology of Learning and Motivation. A second paper, tentatively titled 'Conceptual Combination for Categories with Graded Structure', is in preparation for The Psychological Review. Experiments have been conducted on estimation of the distance between spatial locations. Other experiments have examined whether categories are imposed when information is used at retrieval, or when the information is originally encoded.
