Mental Representations

Allan Paivio

Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on the development of internal representations and processes as viewed from the perspective of dual coding theory. Relevant data are interpreted in terms of the assumptions of the theory and, where such data are not available, some testable implications are proposed. The chapter begins with some views concerning developmental mechanisms. It then considers evidence that bears on the verbal-nonverbal representational distinction, functional interconnections between and within the two systems, and the different functional properties associated with them individually and jointly.

Keywords:   dual coding theory, developmental mechanisms, verbal representations, nonverbal representations, cognitive skills
