ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study was to test the nature of the representational similarity effect by examiningsimple sentences containing different levels of relational information. More specifically, participants’ readingtimes and accuracy of understanding of the transitive inferences with different types of noun phrases are testedin order to investigate whether the representational similarity affects the integration processes. The results ofthe two experiments showed clearly the effect of the complexity of the relational information as well as the effectof the representational similarity. More importantly, relational complexity pattern and the similarity factorare interacting only when integrations are needed. Such results support the idea that the locus of the representationalsimilarity is the integration stage of the cognitive processes.
