923 Through perceptual learning 1 , people improve their ability to recognize the visual world, detecting features that went undetected before the training, as in the case of a trained tracker. It has been controversial where in the brain this improvement occurs. Conventional wisdom places perceptual learning at the cognitive level, where it is thought to allow the brain to make better use of signals supplied by the early visual cor-tices. In contrast, recent results indicate that even primary… CONTINUE READING
