    Abstract ( 3211 )   PDF (415KB) ( 1745 )  
    The dissociation between perception and action was found from clinical cases at first. Illusion paradigms on normal subject were used in examining the phenomena further. As a result, four kinds of explanations were proposed. The planning-control model, which supposed that action can be divided into two stages: planning stage and control stage, got lots of factual supports especially. Furthermore, it was believed that separate processing modules underlay planning and control, and each module employed a distinct visual representation. Visual illusions affected the planning of action but did not affect the on-line control of action. Experimental facts of planning-control model in dynamic illusion effects were reviewed.

    Abstract ( 3617 )   PDF (409KB) ( 1745 )  
    After reviewing the experimental research on syntax priming, we think through the syntax production. A connectionist model can make good explanation of human’s processing of syntax during speech production. The model and the output of experiments makes clear there exists combinational node in lemma stratum. It is combinational node that might encode syntactic rules, and relate directly to syntax processing

    Abstract ( 4239 )   PDF (394KB) ( 2912 )  
    Snyder(1974)developed self-monitoring to interpret the individual differences in self-presentation. He suggested that concerning for the situational appropriateness of their behaviors, and being sensitive to the cues of situations, using them to guide their self-presentation behavior characterize high self-monitors. The review of my paper have suggested that the Snyder’s definition to the high self-monitoring may be faulty. With the analysis of the function and the process of self-presentation, this paper supposed that people must maintain interpersonal harmony and self harmony in order to make a desired impression. In term of the two dimension, theoretically, there are the four kinds of people in the self-presentation process: the high self-monitors not only maintain self harmony but also interpersonal harmony.
