Recent advances in the study of the illusion of causality: theory, methods, and practical implications

By , , |

Learning causal relations provides the knowledge that allows us to make accurate predictions. Some of these predictions may have a high value for survival, and some of them provide us with a body of knowledge that maximize context adaptation. This is why researchers have tried to understand how people make causal inferences and learn about the causal structures [...]

Computational models, educational implications, and methodological innovations: The realm of visual word recognition

By , , , , |

This article aims to provide an overview of the current status of visual word recognition research, from the main models and their current challenges, to the educational and methodological implications of studies in this field. Visual word recognition is a critical reading process that connects visual sensation and perception with linguistic (sentence, text) processing. For this reason, it [...]
