;) I am reading the review paper:
"Levels of processing during non-conscious perception: a critical review of visual masking"
(link was not allowed)
and have encountered the terms: "semantic activation" and "lexical processing".

Can anyone state what is the difference between the two?

I saw some definitions in the web but I look for something else. I am looking for an example for an experiment which focuses on one methid and not the other.


admin note: please stick to the standard letter size and use added size for emphasis, not for the whole text - thank you

I think they might operate in opposite directions: semantic activation is the process of first perceiving an object or concept and then naming the object or concept; lexical processing involves first reading a word and then recognising its corresponding object or concept.
