Example text

The studies reviewed to this point demonstrate a relatively consistent pattern of results. When participants process sentences and visual percepts in succession, congruency effects occur: Participants are faster to respond when the information described by the sentence matches that presented in the visual percept. When participants are asked to process sentences and percepts at the same time, interference occurs: Participants are faster to respond when the content of the sentence mismatches the content of the percept, and their perceptual acuity is reduced when the perceptual stimuli that are presented are congruent with the content of the language with respect to content or spatial location.
