  • Are we faster to recognize the word BOOK after seeing AUTHOR, EDITOR, TRAVEL, or ARTICLE?
  • Are there differences in the time course of integration and memory for word pairs having locative relations (e.g., ISLAND HOUSE) vs. compositional relations (e.g., STRAW HOUSE)?
  • How do individual differences such as creativity and executive functioning predict analogical reasoning?
