Time and Location
Poster Session II - Board: II-005
Friday May 23, 2008, 8:00 AM - 9:00 AM

We hypothesized and found that verifying affective (FRIEND can be tender) versus sensory (BABY can be babbling) properties of concepts is disrupted more by a concomitant affective than identity working memory load.
