Psych 100 Winter, 2009 Gibbs Exam 3 1. Mental imagery involves a. Experiencing a sensory impression in the absence of sensory input b. Mental representations of the current sensory inputs c. Sensory representations of a stimulus d. All of these 2. Shepard and Metzler’s “image rotation” experiment was extremely influential and important to the study of cognition because it demonstrated a. How easy mental rotation is for humans b. That humans cannot successfully rotate mental images beyond 90 degrees c. That humans can only perform mental rotation on “real-world” objects d. That imagery and perception share the same mechanisms 3. Mental “images” can be representations of which senses? a. visual b. smell c. taste d. all of the above 4. Mental scanning experiments found a. A positive linear relationship between scanning time and distance on the image b. A negative linear relationship between scanning time and distance on the image c. A constant scanning time for all locations on an image d. That imagery does not represent spatial relations in the same way that perceptual information does 5. Suppose that, as a participant in an imagery study, you are asked to memorize the four outside walls of a 3-story rectangular house. Later, you are asked to report how many windows are in the front of the house. You will probably be FASTEST to answer this question if you create an image as though you are standing a. right at the front door b. two feet from the front door c. at the far side of the front yard, away from the house d. one mile away from the house

6. Suppose we asked people to form simultaneous images of two or more animals such as a mouse and an elephant. Then, we asked them basic questions about the animals. For example, we might ask people if the mouse has whiskers. Given our knowledge of imagery research, we could expect the fastest or most detailed response to this question when the mouse is imagined in the same mental image with a. A dog b. Another mouse c. the elephant d. A bumblebee 7. A typical cognitive map of mine might include a. the location of Rite Aid on my route b. the location of the U.C.D. playing fields c. the location of highway 113 d. all of the above 8. We tend to regularize features in our cognitive maps. These regularizations include a. a right angle bias b. representing shapes as more symmetrical than they really are c. distorting mental images to be better aligned than they actually are d. all of the above 9. Which of the following statements is true of mental imagery? a. mental transformations of images are similar to actual transformations of physical objects b. spatial relations among the elements of a visual image are analogous to relations in actual space c. neither of the above is true d. both of the above are true 10. Suppose we ask people to perform the following cognitive tasks. Which task is LEAST likely to strongly activate the visual cortex? a.
