” IN THE NAME OF GOD MOST MERCIFUL MOST GRACIOUS “
I should like to thank everyone, both connected with the Psychology Department, and apart from it, who in their own way, however small, helped to make this thesis possible.
Special thanks are extended to my supervisor, Dr. Alan Beaton, for constant help and guidance throughout. I am much obliged to Mr. John Griffith and his fellow Technicians for photographing stimuli and organising equipment. I would mention in particular Philip, and Neil for their special help in programming the experiments.
I am eternally grateful, of course, to my friends and fellow students for their time and patience whilst being subjected to my rather lengthy experiments.
Lastly sincere thanks to my family, my mother, Reka, Rania, Muhammad for their robust and complete support in different ways.
