An Invitation

Users of PERSPACE are invited to experiment with various applications of the program, and to send any comments to John F. Kihlstrom.  


Author Notes

This manual draws some textual material from a chapter by Kihlstrom and Cunningham (1990), to which the reader is referred for more details concerning the conceptual rationale for PERSPACE. This chapter, in turn, was based on a paper prepared for a conference on Methods for Studying Self-Schemas and Prototypes sponsored by the Program on Conscious and Unconscious Mental Processes of the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences, Stanford, California, March 1986.

Preparation of these papers, and the PERSPACE program itself, was supported in part by Subcontract #1122SC from the University of California, San Francisco, Grants #MH-35856 and #MH-44739 from the National Institute of Mental Health, and by an H.I. Romnes Faculty Fellowship from the University of Wisconsin.

We thank Terrence Barnhardt, Lawrence Couture, Paul DuBois, Martha Glisky, Stanley Klein, Rebbecca Laird, Lori Marchese, Shelagh Mulvaney, Patricia Register, Victor Shames, Charles Stinson, Douglas Tataryn, Betsy Tobias, Irene Tobis, Susan Valdisseri, and James Wood for their comments during the preparation of this chapter and the earlier paper. The support of Mardi J. Horowitz, Jerome L. Singer, and Charles Stinson at the Program on Conscious and Unconscious Mental Processes is gratefully acknowledged.
