Inhibition accompanies reference-frame selection [pdf]Paper  abstract   bibtex   
Spatial relational terms are ambiguous because they can be defined by different and sometimes conflicting frames of reference. Previous research (e.g., L. A. Carlson-Radvansky and D. E. Irwin, 1994) has suggested that multiple reference frames are simultaneously active before a reference frame is selected. Two experiments involving 42 undergraduates examined the on-line selection of a reference frame to determine whether it is assisted by inhibition. These experiments used a negative-priming paradigm in which access to a reference frame was assessed on trial n when that reference frame was either available but not selected or not available on trial n-1. Significant negative priming was observed; it operated along the axis of the reference frame, encompassing both end points. In addition, reference-frame selection seems to be independent of object selection. The authors cast these findings within the view of negative priming as an inhibitory mechanism, and discuss their implications for the use of spatial relations.
