In many ways the spirit of Gestalt research, with its emphasis on the productive and non-associationistic nature of thinking, informed the information-processing approach that followed some decades later (Holyoak, 1991; Knoblich & Wartenberg, 1998; Ohlsson, 1984a, 1992).

Search of associative memory (SAM) model Raaijmakers and Shiffrin (1981) put forward the search of associative memory (SAM) model. Such evidence is of special value, because it suggests that the techniques are not providing distorted information. Connectionist interactive models can simulate adult reading of words and non-words, and “lesioned” networks can mimic the reading performance of surface and deep dyslexics.

For example, understanding how people think is important to understand how thought malfunctions occur, causing inappropriate behavior. It is of theoretical interest because tau appears to be a good example of the kind of high-level invariant emphasised by Gibson. This suggested the capacity of the phonological loop is determined by temporal duration like a tape loop, and that memory span is determined by the rate of rehearsal. Open-ended card sorting is a very useful tool for studying mental categories and exploring why some categories are formed and others are not.

This is a condition in which the word-finding problems are so great that patients often produce neologisms, which are made-up words. While these automatic thought patterns can lead to negative emotional states and behaviors, they can also be mitigated through various means. Dual-task performance depends on task similarity, practice, and task difficulty. Attention control is the interplay of processes that determine what we attend to and what we ignore. According to the model, the short-term store acts as a gateway between the sensory stores and long-term memory (see Figure 6.1).

In contrast, the indirect route closely resembles the recall process as described by two-process theorists.

It would thus be valuable to manipulate the rate of expansion as directly as possible. To quote Gazzaniga et al. (1998, p. 102), “Unlike experimental work which by its nature is cumulative, modelling research tends to occur in isolation.
