Abstract

I present evidence that masked repetition priming of word identification can be modulated by post-prime cues. Cues consisted of targets presented in black, with repetition and unrelated primes equally likely for such targets, or in a color that was correlated with type of prime (e.g., red = repetition prime, green = unrelated prime). There was an increase in response latency for targets with unrelated primes and a decrease in response latency to targets with repetition primes when target color was correlated with type of prime. In this correlation condition, subjects exhibited a larger reliance on the prime for target processing. In the condition where target color was unrelated to prime type, subjects had less reliance on the prime and processed the target more independently.
