Example text

In a nutshell, a test stimulus “activates” all stored exemplars (remember, that’s j ∈ J) to an extent that is determined by the similarity between i and each j. What exactly is similarity? GCM assumes that stimuli are represented in a perceptual space and that proximity within that space translates into similarity. 7, which shows the perceptual representation of three hypothetical stimuli that differ along a single dimension—in this case, line length. The broken line labeled d represents the distance between two of those stimuli.

Each row shows training faces from one of the two categories. Figure reprinted from Nosofsky, R. M. (1991). Tests of an exemplar mode for relating perceptual classification and recognition memory. Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Perception and Performance, 17, 3–27. Published by the American Psychological Association; reprinted with permission. 9 but also new ones to test the model’s ability to generalize). Those test stimuli are coded in the same way as training stimuli—namely, by a set of dimensional values.

7), and x jk is the value of dimension k for the stored exemplar j (say, the right-most stimulus in the panel). The number of dimensions that enter into computation of the distance is arbitrary; the cartoon faces were characterized by four dimensions, but of course we cannot easily show more than two dimensions at a time. Those dimensions were eye height, eye separation, nose length, and mouth height. , xik − x jk ) in the equation. How, then, does distance relate to similarity? 4) where c is a parameter and di j the distance as just defined.
