Dual-Coding Theory

Dual-coding Theory proposes that the brain uses separate yet connected representations and processes for verbal and non-verbal data. For example, hearing the word “ball” may trigger a mental image of your beach ball and a picture of a ball may trigger the word “ball” in your mind. This theory was proposed by Allan Paivio, a Canadian psychology professor, in 1971.
