Unformatted text preview: Parallel vs. Serial Processing parallel--bunch of shit happens at the same time. Parallel processing Serial processing Electronics assembly Engine assembly Final assembly Test drives Body assembly Automotive analogy (Schmidt & Lee, 1999) this model is just serial though for the sake of the class. Parallel vs. Serial Processing RT studies are thought to indicate that human IP occurs partly in parallel and partly serial. Stimulus (input) Stimulus identification Response selection Response programming Reaction time Movement (output) Expanded model of information processing (Schmidt & Lee, 1999) Stimulus Identification Stage • Represents the detection of a stimulus, and its recognition as part of a pattern. Stimulus Detection Light in the optic array Transformed into code of neurological impulses More processing to contact you memory understand that light in the optic array based on your konwledge base is a chair. Increasing stimulus clarity and intensity shortens the stimulus identification stage reaction time is not fixed 14 pattern recognition- Pattern Recognition speaks to your konwledge base. Most pattern detection is learned, and often differentiates experts and novices e.g., Static - chess Chase & Simon (1973) Dynamic - patterns of play in soccer Williams & Burwitz (1993) Schmidt (1987): automaticity in motor performance develops due to sensory info being detected quickly and accurately. Processing Stages Stimulus (input) Stimulus identification Response selection Response programming Reaction time Movement (output) The Response Selection Stage Here, the perceiver takes the knowing of the environment achieved in the stimulus detection stage, and selects an appropriate response. 15 HICKS LAW---if you have a choice reacti...
