The processing of the stimuli and its implicit recovery & is based on the semantic organization (Tulving; Schacter, 1990). An aspect that we will consider at the time of the election of priming semantic will be the one that to us Shelton and Martin (1992) in their investigations offered, that is to say, is necessary to make an associative distinction between priming semantic and nonassociative, since priming automatic is obtained associatively for related words, but it does not stop words that are related semantics not associatively but. This could also influence in the latency time that we studied. According to experimental results of Groot (1990), only are effects of facilitation in the related condition associatively. In our case, then, to present/display a greater facilitation, we will only present/display priming semantic of associative type.
Finally, according to Craik & Lockhart (1972), exists two levels of processing: superficial and deep. The information would be codified at surfaces when it is a processing based on the characteristics of the stimulus, whereas the deep processing would be that one that occurs from the elaboration on the meaning. Method Participants In the investigation 180 subjects (90 men and 90 women) of voluntary form, of 25 will participate to 55 years, distributed in six groups of age (25-30/31-35/36-40/41-45/46-50/51-55). The factor is controlled educative level, selecting to all the subjects with a mean level/superior (loquacious/university studies). The recruitment will be done between different groups, participating without no remuneration. The participants will not present/display sensorial, neurological alterations nor of consumption of substances that could affect the development of the tasks. Materials Like apparatuses, two computers have been used, in which they have gone appearing the definitions, a questionnaire in which each subject will have to indicate its name, age and sex, and a pencil to aim.
