Contexualization in perception and action

Discusses the role of contextualization in cognitive representations of perceived and produced events. Such representations are contextualized by integrating them with codes of events they accompany. Evidence of several studies by the authors' laboratory suggests that stimuli become integrated with the response and the task they signal or accompany, so that reviewing a stimulus tends to reactivate the previously related response and task. However, even though the integration of context events seems to occur automatically, it is affected by attentional control settings. A dimensional priming model can account for this interaction of automatic and attentional processes. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2005 APA, all rights reserved)
