Humans, as well as other primates, have a high tolerance to laterally reversed images (the mirror version). But the mirror version of a letter changes its canonical representation, thereby the orientation insensitivity might lead to erroneous letter identification (Caramazza & Hillis, 1990).“mirror generalization is an intrinsic property of the primate visual system, which must be unlearned when learning to read” (Dehaene, Cohen, Sigman & Vinckier, 2005, p. 339). In some alphabetic languages lateral reversals of some letters result in different letter representation (e.g., b-d, p-q), and recent behavioural evidence suggests that when individual letters within a word are reversed, readers are highly sensitive to mirror-letter manipulations if the letters are non-reversible (i.e., b/d/p/q; Perea, Moret-Tatay & Panadero, 2011).
Research question: Does the order/position of mirrored letter matters by visual word regnition?
Pilot study conducted in December 2015 in Eye Movement and Reading Laboratory in National Chengchi University during my research stay.
- 4 participants had to decide which of the two words presented on a screen corresponded to an auditorily presented word
- Audio stimulus → Visual stimulus
- Visual stimulus: one target (correct word) and one distractor (one or two letters mirrored)
