I put the answers within the text:


a. Provide a complete reference for the study using APA format

Chettih, S., Durgin, F. H., & Grodner, D. J. (2012). Mixing metaphors in the cerebral hemispheres: What happens when careers collide? Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 38(2), 295-311. doi:10.1037/a0025862

b. Find a statement of the hypothesis or the purpose for the research study. What section of the article usually contains this information?

Hypothesis & Purpose:

“Are processes of figurative comparison and figurative categorization different? An experiment combining alternative-sense and matched-sense metaphor priming with a divided visual field assessment technique sought to isolate processes of comparison and categorization in the 2 cerebral hemispheres” (Chettih, 2012).

Where it was found: Abstract or First paragraph


c. See if the author(s) includes a suggestion for future research or identifies a limitation of the current study that might he corrected in future research. What section of the article usually contains such a suggestion?

Limitations: The author identifies limitations in the conclusions that the study drawn as merely a correlation not causation as stated- “The present data merely suggest that the coding in the RH is flexible, such that different sorts of structural alignments may be more or less readily available under various interpretive contexts. A more developed theory may need to appeal to a process of constraint satisfaction …Specifically, given overlap across coarse-grained semantic fields, structural alignment might arise by subjecting the activation patterns that emerge to principles of satisfaction of multiple constraints” (Chettih, 2012).

This information was found in the Discussion section.


d. Find out how many individuals participated in the study and describe their characteristics (age, gender, and so on). Where is this information located in the .report?

Individuals- Sixty Four college students from Swarthmore who were undergraduates. They spoke English natively were right handed and had normal vision.

Information found- In the “Method” section
