  • Abstract. We investigated the roles of feedback and attention in training a vernier discrimination task as an example of perceptual learning. Human learning even of simple stimuli, such as verniers, relies on more complex mechanisms than previously expected – ruling out simple neural network models. These findings are not just an empirical oddity but are evidence that present models fail to reflect some important characteristics of the learning process. We will list some of the problems of… CONTINUE READING
