Abstract or Summary
  • Perea, Vergara-Martínez, and Gomez (2015) claimed a late locus of case mixing in visual word recognition. In their masking priming study, participants performed a lexical-decision task on an uppercase target, which was preceded by an identity or unrelated prime (e.g., “plane” or “music” followed by “PLANE”, respectively) in lowercase or mixed case. They found similar priming effects (unrelated – identity) for lowercase and mixed-case primes, suggesting case mixing does not impede the early lexical access. In Experiment 1, we used uppercase or lowercase targets. While the uppercase target replicated Perea et al., the priming effects for the lowercase target were larger for lowercase than mixed-case primes. Experiment 2 examined whether the priming effect was caused by lexical access by using a non-lexical, font discrimination task. No priming effects were observed for both lowercase and mixed-case primes. These results suggest an earlier locus for priming caused by a pre-lexical process.
