Abstract:

In the second year of the grant I continued three projects initiated in the first year, and began two new lines of research. A study of contingent coding in normality judgements yielded disappointing results. We started a systematic exploration of the relation between discriminability and similarity, which we plan to extend to categorization and normality. A series of studies established essentially perfect dimensional independence in object-specific priming. We conducted a theoretical and empirical examination of close counterfactuals. Two separate projects dealt with the process of comparison, continuing and extending work reported last year. Keywords Perception, Psychology, Categorization, Comparison processes, Normality.
