BACKGROUND Recent experiments have demonstrated a remarkable amount of specificity in the learning of simple visual tasks in humans, as well as considerable plasticity of receptive fields in the visual cortex of adult monkeys. Here, we tested the specificity of improvement through learning in the performance of human observers on two tasks using almost identical stimuli. RESULTS Two groups, of six observers each, were trained in two hyperacuity tasks - three-dot bisection and three-dot… Expand
