Event-related potentials were recorded in a paradigm where an unrelated word was interposed between two related words. In one condition, the intervening item was masked and in another condition it was not. The N400 component indicated that priming of the related word was disrupted by the intervening item whether it was masked or not. The data are interpreted to be inconsistent with retrieval models of priming.

Two experiments are reported that examined qualitative differences in how semantic information is represented in the two hemispheres. In the first experiment, items that were associatively related but did not share semantic features or membership in semantic categories produced priming when delivered to the LH (RVF) but not to the RH (LVF). In the second experiment items that shared semantic features but were neither associates nor in the same category produced priming in the RH (LVF), but not i...

Abstract Several authors have contended that the N400 is a reflection of a post-lexical event such as that proposed by Neely and Keefe [J.H. Neely, D.E. Keefe, Semantic context effects on visual word processing: a hybrid prospective/retrospective processing theory, in: G.H. Bower (Ed.), The Psychology of Learning and Motivation: Advances in Research and Theory, Vol. 23, Academic Press, New York, 1989, pp. 207–248.], whereby the subject compares the word on the current trial to the “context” prov...

Abstract The N400 component of event-related potentials (ERPs) was obtained in a modified version of the Neely [J.H. Neely, Semantic priming and retrieval from lexical memory: Roles of inhibitionless spreading activation and limited-capacity attention, Journal of Experimental Psychology: General, Vol. 106 (1977), pp. 226–254.] paradigm which permits unconfounding of semantic priming effects due to automatic and attentional processes. It was found that a short stimulus onset asynchrony (SOA) of 2...

Interposing an unrelated word between related primes and targets often disrupts priming. This finding has been used to support the view that semantic information is represented in a distributed fashion, rather than locally. In some studies where unrelated items intervened between the prime and target, however, significant priming was nevertheless obtained. The discrepant results of these studies has been attributed to differences in speed-accuracy tradeoff, post-lexical checking, conscious rehea...
