A Connectionist Model for Context Effects in the Picture-Word Interference Task
In the picture-word interference task, two context effects can be distinguished: the semantic interference effect and the orthographic facilitation effect A theory is described to explain these effects. This theory was implemented in a connectionist model. The model is able to simulate the time courses of the two context effects and their interaction.
