Its intellectual origins are in the mid-1950s when researchers in several fields began to develop theories of mind based on complex representations and computational procedures. Examples of these methods of componential analysis are the use of think-aloud protocols as data (Ericsson and Simon, 1993) and the use of models that simulate the interactions of perceptual, memory, learning and thinking processes over a wide range of cognitive tasks (e.g., Anderson, 1993; Feigenbaum and Simon, 1984; Newell, 1991).

Finally, in 1919, he became a professor of mathematics at MIT, where he would stay put until 1960. Here he met Simon (of Simon-Binet fame) and did research on intelligence testing. They found that there was facespecific activation in parts of the right fusiform gyrus, and these findings have been replicated by others (see Farah & Aguirre, 1999, for details). This can be learned by using “oak” as the keyword, and forming an image of an oak tree covered with bells.

In addition, the context processing deficit theory does not explain amnesics’ poor recognition-memory performance. For example, we wouldn’t get someone who perhaps has suffered a serious sexual assault to put themselves in the shoes of a perpetrator; however when they’ve witnessed a crime as an eyewitness rather than as a victim themselves then that is a very useful technique to get them to think about the bigger picture.

All social and emotional development occurs in a cultural context. Most people do not "see" (i.e. perceive) the object immediately, though usually do once told what it is. While hoarding behavior can occur on its own, individuals who hoard may also experience other mental health problems such as depression or OCD. There was a shared-context condition in which the participants knew that the listener could see the same additional objects that they could see.

Deep dyslexics resemble phonological dyslexics, but also make semantic reading errors. In fact, heading errors of between 5° and 10° were reported in most early research (e.g., Warren, 1976). While Marr (1982) was working on the neuroscience of vision, Chomsky famously criticized the behaviorist idea that language acquisition is just an ordinary kind of learning that follows the stimulus-response model by proving the intractability of some learning algorithms (see, for example, his 1959 review of Skinner's Verbal Behavior or Chomsky 1957; for a later statement of similar ideas see Chomsky 1975).

Reflecting on the ritualization of creativity, Bukowski famously scoffed that “air and light and time and space have nothing to do with.” Samuel Johnson similarly contended that “a man may write at any time, if he will set himself doggedly to it.” And yet some of history’s most successful and prolific writers were women and men of religious daily routines and odd creative rituals. (Even Buk himself ended up sticking to a peculiar daily routine .) Such strategies, it turns out, may be psychologically sound and cognitively fruitful.

Third, it is assumed within the theory that reading and object recognition both involve analytic processing. Eyewitnesses are heavily relied upon: in 347 British cases with only only eye witness, there was 74% conviction. [But need comparative info on % of convictions in comparable cases with no eye witness.] Memories of eyewitnesses deteriorate when time elapses before they are interviewed. where students are asked to estimate the speed 'at which the car was going past the barn' in a movie, six times as many students reported there was a barn as students that were not so primed. where students are asked 'did the truck pass the red car while it was stopped at the STOP sign, 80% believed that they saw the nonexistent STOP sign.

Furthermore, Kosslyn noted that subjects’ introspective reports suggested that they were “zooming in” to see the parts of the subjectively smaller images. People use relational structure to find one-to-one (or isomorphic) mappings between corresponding objects in two domains when such objects are dissimilar or non-corresponding objects are (misleadingly) similar (Ross, 1977, 1989).

They also obtained fMRI evidence from a different task that the inferior frontal gyrus is activated when people are engaged in phonological processing. Unfortunately, this is probably impossible given the breadth of human knowledge and the possible variability in knowledge structures from one individual to the next. Pazzani established that most people know that stretching a balloon makes it easier to inflate and that adults can inflate balloons more easily than children (but note that this knowledge does not correspond directly to the disjunctive definition subjects had to learn).
