Priming by relational integration in perceptual identification and Stroop colour naming (2013)
Journal Article
Mather, E., Estes, Z., & Jones, L. L. (2014). Priming by relational integration in perceptual identification and Stroop colour naming. Journal of Memory and Language, 71(1), 57-70. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jml.2013.10.004

Integrative priming is the facilitated recognition of a target word following a prime word with which it can be combined to produce a sub-type of the target (e.g., a lake bird is a type of bird). Such priming occurs even in the absence of lexical ass... Read More
