activation of evoked text

While reading text, readers establish local coherence in short-term memory...In semantic memory, each concept is connected to a number of other concepts. Activating one concept activates its adjacent concepts which in turn activate their adjacent concepts.

This process continues until further activation of adjacent propositions does not change the propositions used to interprete the text."
