Perceptual Learning , Cognition , and Expertise

  title={Perceptual Learning , Cognition , and Expertise},
  author={Philip J. Kellman and Christine M. Massey},
Recent research indicates that perceptual learning (PL)—experience-induced changes in the way perceivers extract information—plays a larger role in complex cognitive tasks, including abstract and symbolic domains, than has been understood in theory or implemented in instruction. Here, we describe the involvement of PL in complex cognitive tasks and why these connections, along with contemporary experimental and neuroscientific research in perception, challenge widely held accounts of the… CONTINUE READING
