Ray would usually respond with some comments on the quality of the pictures and their subject matter, and Bob would invariably say at some point, as an aside to the audience, "I sure wish you folks out there in radioland could see these pictures. If one can imagine what it would be to wink knowingly at someone over the radio, one can understand the humor of Bob and Ray. One can also, I think, begin to see something of the fascination in the problem of ekphrasis, the verbal representation of visual representation. The first might be called "ekphrastic indifference," and it grows out of a commonsense perception that ekphrasis is impossible.
Show Context Citation Context Non-Verbal Counting in Humans: Gallistel, Rochel Gelman - Psychological Science" In non-verbal counting tasks derived from the animal literature, adult human subjects repeatedly attempted to produce target numbers of key presses at rates that made vocal or subvocal counting difficult or impossible.
In a second task, they estimated the number of flashes in a rapid, randomly timed In a second task, they estimated the number of flashes in a rapid, randomly timed sequence. Congruent with the animal data, mean estimates in both tasks were proportional to target values, as was the variability in the estimates.
Converging evidence makes it unlikely that subjects used verbal counting or time durations to perform these tasks. The results support the hypothesis that adult humans share with non-verbal animals a system for representing number by magnitudes that have scalar variability a constant coefficient of variation.
The mapping of numerical symbols to mental magnitudes provides a formal model of the underlying non-verbal meaning of the symbols a model of numerical semantics.
These representations are formally analogous to points on the real number line. Meck and Church proposed such a representation to account for animal non-verbal counts of objects or events Figure 1.
According to their theory each item is enumerated by an impulse of activation which is added to an accumulator.
The magnitude in the accumulator at the end of the count is read into memory, where it represents the number of the counted set. The noise trial-to-trial variability in these remembered magnitudes is proportional to the magnitude, a property that Gibbon called scalar variability.
Mathematical modeling of psychophysical data from a variety of tasks indicates that memory is the dominant source of trial Subjects were specifically instructed to approximat Shapes of reaction-time distributions and shapes of learning curves: A test of the instance theory of automaticity by Gordon D.
Logan - Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition" The instance theory assumes that automatic performance is based on single-step direct-access retrieval from memory of prior solutions to present problems. The theory predicts that the shape of the learning curve depends on the shape of the distribution of retrieval times.
One can deduce from the fun One can deduce from the fundamental assumptions of the theory that 1 the entire distribution of reaction times, not just the mean, will decrease as a power function of practice; 2 asymptotically, the retrievaltime distribution must be a Weibull distribution; and 3 the exponent of the Weibull, which is the parameter that determines its shape, must be the reciprocal of the exponent of the power function.
These predictions were tested and mostly confirmed in 12 data sets from 2 experiments.To some extent, I will suggest that the transformation of policy and development rhetoric to include gender, as distinct from women's issues (itself, arguably, a 'post-feminist' dilution of women's equality), masks a fundamental attachment to 'business-as-usual', where social roles, pay differentials, political representation and environmental degradation remain little changed.
But in fact the verbal and visual ability measures are themselves correlated, +] The key behavioral task involved making a similarity judgment of figures. Each figure had three dimensions (e.g., “orange, circle, stripes”) and could be shown as a verbal description or as a figure.
