Abstract / short description:
This project will investigate the interplay of modal and amodal encodings underlying space-metric associations (SMAs) that, for example, elicit the SNARC (Spatial-Numerical Associations of Response Codes) effect. Some accounts of SMAs postulate amodal representations (like the serial order working memory account), while other accounts focus on situated modal modulations. By employing virtual reality setups, we will dissociate different modal influences to understand their contributions and interactions. Moreover, we will examine amodal accounts by contrasting serial order-induced with magnitude-induced SMAs. As a result, we will scrutinize task-dependent interactions between modal and amodal representations underlying the SNARC effect and other SMA effects. Based on these findings, we will develop a computational theory that will model modal and amodal encodings and their interactions.
