Sample text

The optic array has a structure determined by the layout of reflecting surfaces. The dark area represents features of the array not currently available to the observer. From Gibson (1979: 71). 2 As the observer stands and moves forward, the ambient optic array is transformed into a new array. The boundaries defining the original angular pyramids (represented with solid lines) change in a regular and lawful way. From Gibson (1979: 72). The observer’s motion causes the faces of some surfaces, for instance the tabletop, to present themselves at different angles, reshaping the pyramids of light they reflect.

Perhaps you have installed additional RAM in your 41 42 challenging standard cognitive science home computer, or have replaced broken components. If so, you may have taken the opportunity to look at the computer’s motherboard and noticed a variety of circuits, cards, wires, processors, and so on. Some of these things are read-only memory, others controllers for video and sound devices, and one is the CPU. Although you might not have been able to identify these various components, they were certainly identifiable as components, and the idea that you were looking at the internal workings of a computer would have struck you as relatively unsurprising.

Consider the following task. A subject is asked to memorize a list of numerals, where this list might contain from one to six members. The subject is then exposed to a single numeral and asked whether the numeral appears in the list that she has memorized. If the subject judges that the numeral is among those on the list, she pulls a lever to indicate a positive response. If the subject does not remember the numeral as being among those on the list, she pulls a different lever to indicate a negative response.
