Distanzabhängiges Repräsentationsformat

Abstract / short description:
The present project investigates the relationship between the psychological distance to a target object and the level of amodality of the representations involved. In particular, the project will test the hypothesis that representations of proximal entities (entities close in space and time) are more modal and representations of distal entities are more amodal. This hypothesis of a distance-dependent representation will be examined in three work packages, whereby each package employs a different task, namely language comprehension, object recognition, and spatial navigation. In each case, we will manipulate the spatial distance (within or beyond grasping space, within or beyond pedestrian walking distance) as well as the temporal distance within or beyond some window of immediateness.
