2017/10/31: Counterbalancing

Trying to find pairs of objects to counterbalance expected versus unexpected locations. The first option, is to build pairs of relevant objects (e.g. knife – toaster) and think of three expected location for the first one that are unexpected for the second one. The problem here is that these are not the super expected locations and I would probably need to show in the normative studies that the expectancy is as hoped. The other option would be to find the most expected locations and try to counterbalancing some of them. I decided to ignore counterbalancing for the pilot study.

2017/10/26: Lew & Howe (2016)

In Lew & Howe (2016), schema-relevancy was measured on a scale of 1 to 10 (very usual to very unusual). Low rating (below 3) were regarded as relevant and rating above 5 were regarded as irrelevant. Irrelevant objects therefore include neutral and unexpected objects. Reference Lew, A. R., & Howe, M. L. (2016). Out of Place, Out of Mind: Schema-Driven False Memory Effects for Object-Location Bindings. Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition.
