Similarity/Domain/Cognition psychology/Gärdenfors: on the analysis of dimensionality of perception structures: Shepard (1987) Thesis: as soon as perception is related to a certain domain or can be structured by similarity, mathematical techniques (e.g. multidimensional scaling (Kruskal, 1964) or principal component analysis) can be applied to create a room with little dimensions with which similarity structures can be representend. Similar judged objects can be located at closer points. In this way, many perception spaces were identified (see Shepard 1987, p. 1318)._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
