BLIND - BLind Italian Norming Data

Feature-based descriptions of concepts produced by subjects in a property generation task are widely used in cognitive science to develop empirically grounded concept representations and to study systematic trends in such representations. BLIND is a publicly available collection of parallel semantic norms collected from a group of congenitally blind Italian subjects and highly comparable sighted subjects. The BLIND norms comprise descriptions of 50 nouns and 20 verbs.
