TLDR
The author concludes that satisfactory understanding of AGL requires an understanding of implicit knowledge as knowledge that is not consciously activated at the time of a cognitive operation.
Implicit learning and implicit memory in moderate to severe memory disorders
TLDR
This type of learning can be considered as a method by which the individual adapts to his or her environment and must derive, in evolutionary terms, from a very old mechanism appearing before the emergence of consciousness.
Structural selection in implicit learning of artificial grammars
TLDR
The present study attempted to replicate the finding in artificial grammar learning that, although salience affected participants’ awareness of the perfectly predictive feature, selection for implicit learning was mainly based on usefulness.
The influence of grammatical, local, and organizational redundancy on implicit learning: an analysis using information theory.
TLDR
The authors demonstrate that the 3 kinds of redundancy are confounded and show that the memorial advantage for grammatical stimuli reflects participants' use of local expressions of grammatical structure to aid learning.
Short Article: What is Learned about Fragments in Artificial Grammar Learning? A Transitional Probabilities Approach
TLDR
The transitional probability model (TPM) is argued to provide an adaptive and parsimonious strategy for encoding local regularities in order to induce sequential structure from an input set of exemplars of the grammar.

Implicit Learning is Intact in Adult Developmental Dyslexic Readers: Evidence from the Serial Reaction Time Task and Artificial Grammar Learning
TLDR
Findings show that implicit learning is intact in dyslexia and should be taken into account when designing training programs for developmental dyslexic readers.
AGL StimSelect: Software for automated selection of stimuli for artificial grammar learning
TLDR
The software, AGL StimSelect, enables researchers to develop AGL designs that would not be feasible without automatic stimulus selection, and is implemented in MATLAB.

TLDR
The results suggest that individuals learn both abstract information about training items and exemplar-specific information about chunk strength and that both types of learning occur independently of declarative memory.

TLDR
In an artificial grammar learning task, amnesic patients classified test items as well as normal subjects did and the results suggest that concrete information about letter chunks can influence gramaticality judgments and that this information is acquired implicitly.
Exploration of implicit artificial grammar learning in Parkinson's disease.
TLDR
Results show that PD patients and controls performed at the same level during the first presentation of the test strings series, which suggests that the striatum is not (crucially) implicated in the ability to learn implicitly the complex conditional associations between elements present in a set of examples generated by a finite-state grammar.
Intact Artificial Grammar Learning in Amnesia: Dissociation of Classification Learning and Explicit Memory for Specific Instances
TLDR
The results show that classification learning based on exemplars of an artificial grammar can develop normally despite impaired memory for the exemplars themselves.
Role of Implicit and Explicit Processes in Learning From Examples: A Synergistic Effect
Four experiments are reported in which subjects gained extensive experience with artificial grammars in explicit and implicit processing tasks. Results indicated that (a) implicit processing was

3 experiments were designed to demonstrate that classifying new letter strings as grammatical (i.e., conforming to a set of rules called a synthetic grammar) or ungrammatical may proceed from
Explicit knowledge in artificial grammar learning
TLDR
Investigation of an explicit generation task in order to assess the explicit knowledge acquired by the subjects in an artificial grammar learning task found that performance in the generation task is specifically related to information learned during the study phase and not to information presented during the classification phase.
Acquistion of a Novel Vocabulary in an Amnesic Patient
TLDR
The results indicate that, despite his profound amnesia, AC was able to learn normally new vocabulary words and confirm that, at least is some cases, semantic learning can be spared in amnesia.
Mechanisms of Implicit Learning: Connectionist Models of Sequence Processing
TLDR
A theoretical framework that unifies existing data and models on implicit learning, along with a detailed computational model of human performance in sequence-learning situations are introduced, showing how complex knowledge may emerge through the operation of elementary mechanisms-a key aspect of implicit learning performance.
Encapsulation of Implicit and Explicit Memory in Sequence Learning
TLDR
Compared with control subjects, amnesic patients exhibited superior performance on the implicit task and impairment on the explicit task, which suggests that implicit and explicit knowledge of the embedded sequence are separate and encapsulated and that they presumably depend on different brain systems.
