汉字字频语境交互激活模型多阶段激活模型ERPThe Frequency of Chinese Characters Semantic Priming Interactive Activation Model Multistage Activation Model ERP



This study uses Chinese characters as materials, in terms of semantic priming a scale of three, two factors concluding frequency (high frequency, low frequency) and semantic priming (start, no start) within subject design, and explores the effect of frequency and semantic priming of Chinese characters. The results show that word frequency and semantic priming are additive effect, and support the multistage activation model.
