To address this question, we used simple feature targets to analyze the interactions between facilitatory and inhibitory mechanisms associated to the repetition of features and position, for responses given either to the feature or to the position. We were able to reproduce the general facilitatory effect when a feature was repeated, and the inhibitory effect when it was changed, although these feature priming effects were always in interaction with repetition effects of spatial position. The most interesting finding, however, was that repetition of spatial position showed facilitation when non-response-defining, and inhibition when coincident with the response (response-defining); that is, repetition effects of spatial position are strictly dependent on the object
