Very excited for Jason Chow's undergraduate research on rapid object categorization published in AP&P! In this paper, Jason looked at the temporal dynamics of object categorization with a novel application of object substitution masking finding an interesting trade-off between basic- and superordinate-level categorization: although superordinate-level categorization demonstrates a clear masking effect very early, it recovers at the first mask offset that impairs basic-level categorization. We argue that this may be evidence of a competitive dynamic between levels of abstraction (e.g., animal vs. dog) during rapid categorization. Jason was one of the first members in the Mack Lab, so excited and proud to have his undergraduate research published! He is currently a graduate student at Vanderbilt University working with Isabel Gauthier and Tom Palmeri.
