On 60% of the trials, the prime and target were semantically related in one of three ways: forward associate (e.g., panda-bear), backward associate (e.g., ball-catch), and symmetric associate (e.g., answer-question). Nonwords showed the reverse pattern, with greater priming effects at the long SOA than at the short one. eCollection 2018.

However, the nonword ratio exerted a stronger influence than did the relatedness proportion on semantic priming for low-dominance exemplars and on the nonword facilitation effect (i.e., the superiority in performance for nonword targets that follow a category name rather than a neutral XXX prime).

Semantic priming for high-dominance exemplars was modulated by the relatedness proportion and, to a lesser degree, by the nonword ratio. Effects of task structure on category priming in patients with Parkinson's disease and in healthy individuals. 2007 Feb;39(1):1-18. doi: 10.3758/bf03192839. remained constant in the semantic categorization task.

COVID-19 is an emerging, rapidly evolving situation. manipulate whether the item being held in memory is simple or complex. The results showed that, for the first evaluation, the depressives presented similar semantic priming to control subjects. J Exp Psychol Learn Mem Cogn.

Each trial is formed by one prime and one target, but usually the prime demands no response, only the participant’s attention.

Semantic priming in the lexical decision task: roles of prospective prime-generated expectancies and retrospective semantic matching J Exp Psychol Learn Mem Cogn. 2019 Oct 15;10:200-222. doi: 10.1515/tnsci-2019-0035. PLoS One. Pomarol-Clotet E, Oh TM, Laws KR, McKenna PJ. In semantic priming paradigms for lexical decisions, the probability that a word target is semantically related to its prime (the relatedness proportion) has been confounded with the probability that a target is a nonword, given that it is unrelated to its prime (the nonword ratio). These results are discussed in terms of task-based inhibition. In a standard semantic priming experiment, participants are required to perform a lexical decision task (decide if the target is a word or a pseudoword) or a pronunciation/naming task (say the target aloud).

Feedback | HHS Int J Psychophysiol. These two prominent people have been one of the reasons why a study on the organization and construction of semantic memory was established way back in the 20th century. Packard PA, Steiger TK, Fuentemilla L, Bunzeck N. Sci Rep. 2020 Jun 4;10(1):9116. doi: 10.1038/s41598-020-65872-7. These results suggest that semantic priming for lexical decisions is affected by both a prospective prime-generated expectancy, modulated by the relatedness proportion, and a retrospective target/prime semantic matching process, modulated by the nonword ratio. Behav Res Methods. The automaticity of the semantic processing of words has been questioned because of the reduction of semantic priming when the prime word is processed nonsemantically—for example, in letter search (the prime task effect). All rights reserved. These results led the authors to conclude that forward associate priming based on prospective processes depends on working memory, whereas backward associate priming based on retrospective processes is relatively effortless.

Semantic priming for high-dominance exemplars was modulated by the relatedness proportion and, to a lesser degree, by the nonword ratio. Lecardeur L, Giffard B, Eustache F, Dollfus S.
