Benefits of multisensory learning
Studies of learning, and in particular perceptual learning, have focused on learning of stimuli consisting of a single sensory modality. However, our experience in the world involves constantExpand

Psychophysics: Is subliminal learning really passive?
Perceptual learning can occur as a result of exposure to a subliminal stimulus, without the subject having to pay attention and without relevance to the particular task in hand — but is this type ofExpand

A unified model for perceptual learning
Perceptual learning in adult humans and animals refers to improvements in sensory abilities after training. These improvements had been thought to occur only when attention is focused on the stimuliExpand

Testing assumptions of statistical learning: Is it long-term and implicit?
Statistical learning has been studied as a mechanism by which people automatically and implicitly learn patterns in the environment. Here, we sought to examine general assumptions about statisticalExpand

The phenomenon of task-irrelevant perceptual learning
Task-irrelevant perceptual learning (TIPL) has captured a growing interest in the field of perceptual learning. The basic phenomenon is that stimulus features that are irrelevant to a subject's taskExpand

Rewards Evoke Learning of Unconsciously Processed Visual Stimuli in Adult Humans
The study of human learning is complicated by the myriad of processing elements involved in conducting any behavioral task. In the case of visual perceptual learning, there has been significantExpand

Task-irrelevant learning occurs only when the irrelevant feature is weak
The role of attention in perceptual learning has been controversial. Numerous studies have reported that learning does not occur on stimulus features that are irrelevant to a subject's task [1,2] andExpand

Rapidly learned stimulus expectations alter perception of motion.
Expectations broadly influence our experience of the world. However, the process by which they are acquired and then shape our sensory experiences is not well understood. Here, we examined whetherExpand

Prolonged Training at Threshold Promotes Robust Retinotopic Specificity in Perceptual Learning
Human perceptual learning is classically thought to be highly specific to trained stimuli's retinal location. Together with evidence that specific learning effects can result in corresponding changesExpand

What a difference a parameter makes: A psychophysical comparison of random dot motion algorithms
We measure the ability of human subjects to estimate motion direction for four commonly used RDM algorithms under a range of parameters in order to understand how these different algorithms compare in their perceptibility. Expand
