In information-integration categorization, accuracy is maximized only if information from two or more stimulus components is integrated at some pre-decisional stage. In many cases the optimal strategy is difficult or impossible to describe verbally. Evidence suggests that success in information-integration tasks depends on procedural learning that is(More)
Three experiments studied the effects of category structure on the development of categorization automaticity. In Experiment 1, participants were each trained for over 10,000 trials in a simple categorization task with one of three category structures. Results showed that after the first few sessions, there were no significant behavioral differences between(More)
Previous evidence suggests that relatively separate neural networks underlie initial learning of rule-based and information-integration categorization tasks. With the development of automaticity, categorization behavior in both tasks becomes increasingly similar and exclusively related to activity in cortical regions. The present study uses multi-voxel(More)
