Fast perceptual learning in hyperacuity

  title={Fast perceptual learning in hyperacuity},
  author={M. Fahle and S. Edelman and T. Poggio},
  journal={Vision Research},
We investigated fast improvement of visual performance in several hyperacuity tasks such as vernier acuity and stereoscopic depth perception in almost 100 observers. Results indicate that the fast phase of perceptual learning, occurring within less than 1 hr of training, is specific for the visual field position and for the particular hyperacuity task, but is only partly specific for the eye trained and for the offset tested. Learning occurs without feedback. We conjecture that the site of… Expand
