Nicole Stüllein Department of Psychology Wuppertal University, Wuppertal, Germany It is well-known that a word is processed faster and more accurately if a semantically associated word is presented beforehand (priming effect, e.g. Neely, 1976). One explanation for this phenomenon is that semantically associated words are strongly connected in our memory structure because of their frequent co-occurrence. The Associative Read-Out Model (AROM) of Hofmann et al. (2011) is the first interactive model with an implemented semantic layer and includes the idea of associative activation spreading. We conducted a memory recognition task, in which 80 words were presented in a study phase and 160 words in a test phase to 32 participants. To investigate different neuronal correlates of the processing of high and low co-occurrence words, 32-channel EEG was measured. Old words led to higher P200 amplitudes than new words and high co-occurrence words increased the “yes” response and lead to smaller N400 amplitudes in learned and non-learned words. Furthermore a significant interaction of the factors Oldness and Co-occurrence was observed in terms of the reaction times, error rates and P600 amplitudes. Showing the longest reaction times, highest error rates and highest P600 amplitudes for high co-occurrence new words. Whereas the shortest reaction times, lowest error rates and smallest P600 amplitudes were produced by high co-occurrence old words. The behavioral and neurophysiological results suggest that different and transitional processes of word perception and recognition take place, which are modulated by semantic associations.
