Focuses on the inhibitory semantic priming of lexical decisions due to failure to retrieve weakly activated codes. Importance in supporting certain types of models of semantic memory; Use to demonstrate that there are some constraints on the extent to which automatic activation of semantically related concepts that occur; Concept in semantic memory that causes transient and dissipating activation.
