FIGURE 6.18 (a) Recall in the same versus different contexts, data from Godden and Baddeley (1975); (b) Recognition in the same versus different contexts. Gabrieli et al. also tested amnesic patients, and confirmed that they showed the opposite pattern of impaired explicit memory but intact perceptual priming. Similarly, it must be admitted that the word-sets in the distributed representation just described are not very feature-like entities but could be categorised as meaningful wholes.

L. (1979) What computers can't do: the limits of artificial intelligence, New York : Harper and Row. Chapter 8 includes a new section on spatial cognition that features work on ?blind-walking? by Canadian researchers. A scenario was presented where the experimenter's usual associate had been unable to attend for an upcoming session where a positive introduction to the tasks was to be given to the next subject. So, a memory-cueing hypothesis would predict that, on the airport problem, subjects in both Hong Kong and Michigan should be equivalent.

During the 1970s, sociobiologists argued that "social behaviors [too] are shaped by natural selection" (Lumsden and Wilson 1981, 99; for the original manifesto of sociobiology see Wilson 1975) and started to seek adaptationist explanations for cognitive, cultural, and social traits, like the ability to behave altruistically, different mating preferences in males and females, or the frequently observed parent-offspring conflicts.

If it is not ambiguous, then it is stored in long-term memory. Furthermore, what the student learns will depend on his or her emotional state. Some of the processes involved in running were studied by Lee, Lishman, and Thomson (1982). In other words, perception is indirect in that it depends on numerous internal processes. Some theorists have argued that forgetting occurs because of the spontaneous decay of memory traces over time.

During his work with dogs, Pavlov found that he could induce dogs to salivate by constantly ringing a bell whenever he fed them. Evaluation knowledge seems to underlie adaptive expertise. Such findings rather undermine the main reason for proposing the motor theory in the first place. This insight, first expressed by the mathematician Alan Turing, the computer scientists Alan Newell, Herbert Simon, and Marvin Minsky, and the philosophers Hilary Putnam and Jerry Fodor, is now called the computational theory of mind.
