Cognitive Psychology: Distinctive Features or Feature Analysis Model - November 20th, 2011

Distinctive Features or Feature Analysis Model


Assumption:
  • stimuli consist of combinations of elementary features; (e.g for the alphabet, features may include horizontal lines, vertical lines, diagonals, and curves)
  • make discriminations based on a small number of characteristics of stimuli
  • distinctive feature components stored in memory

Psychological Evidence: Gibson (1969)
  • decide whether or not two letters are different
  • takes longer to respond to P & R versus G & M
  • P & R share many critical features

Neurological Evidence: Hubel & Wiesel (1962)
  • microelectrodes in cats' brains (visual cortex)
  • some neurons respond only to horizontal lines, others to diagonals...
  • similar evidence in monkeys (Maunsell & Newsome, 1987)
  • certain feature detectors are 'wired' and help us identify features and simple patterns
