It has been suggested that the improvement of vernier acuity in the course of practice reflects "fine tuning" of the visual mechanisms underlying vernier acuity. Masking studies suggest that an important source of information by which the visual system may accomplish fine vernier acuity is the activity in orientation tuned channels. Therefore, we investigated whether improvement in vernier acuity after training was accompanied by systematic changes in the orientation tuning characteristics of… Expand
