W. K. Estes

Oxford University Press

This chapter reviews the processing assumptions of the array-similarity model for categorization, and revises the formulation discussed in Chapters 2-5 by allowing for varying degrees of similarity between categories. It then applies the revised exemplar model to a number of problems not previously addressed by categorization models, including the learning of confusable categories, transfer between categorizations, changes in discriminability of features with experience, the interpretation of causal judgments, and cued recall.

Keywords:   categorization, recall, exemplar model, sentence memory, direct recall
