Figures for the Manuscript titled as 'Superior Cognitive Mapping through Single-landmark-related Learning than through Boundary-related Learning'Download
Cognitive mapping is assumed to be through hippocampus-dependent place learning rather than striatum-dependent response learning. However, we propose that either type of spatial learning, as long as it involves encoding metric relations between locations and reference points, could lead to a...
Hyponymy ratings of English compound words
This database contains hyponymy ratings for 2754 English compounds. The database is available in both Stata and CSV formats. The variable id_master refers to the item number in the LADEC database (Gagné, CL., Spalding, TL., & Schmidtke, D. (2019). LADEC: Large database of English compounds....
This entry contains the data and Stata analyses files for Auch, L., Gagné, C. L., & Spalding T. L. (In press). Conceptualizing semantic transparency: A systematic analysis of semantic transparency measures in English compound words. Methods in Psychology. The article is Open Access.
LaDEC: Large database of English compounds
The Large Database of English Compounds (LADEC) consists of over 8000 English words that can be parsed into two constituents that are free morphemes. This file contains compounds formed from 3-10 letter long bases. All items are listed in Wordnet as Nouns. The database contains a number of...

Matlab code demonstrating how to calculate the homing error, position error, and heading error using the replaced O, X1 to X4.Download
This method was developed and used in the following articles. Mou, W., & Zhang, L. (2014). Dissociating position and heading estimations: Rotated visual orientation cues perceived after walking reset headings but not positions. Cognition, 133(3), 553-571. Zhang, L., & Mou, W. (2017). Piloting...
Matlab code demonstrating why the slope a (or leg ratio) is the key manipulation to distinguish between the self-localization hypothesis and the homing hypothesis
Matlab code for calculating position and heading estimates from responses in pointing to buildingsDownload
These Matlab codes were used to calculate participants' heading and position estimates from their responses of pointing to different buildings in Zhang & Mou (2018) "Selective Resetting Position and Heading Estimations While Driving in a Large-Scale Immersive Virtual Environment".
