Perceptual learning in visual search generalizes over tasks, locations, and eyes

In a visual search task, targets containing elementary features are detected in parallel, while a serial search is necessary for the detection of a target without a feature, or for targets containing conjunctions of features. In this study, we re-investigated the role of practice in visual search tasks, using an uncued visual search paradigm. Under some circumstances, initially serial tasks can become parallel with practice. Perceptual learning of feature search tasks is rapid (a few hundreds… CONTINUE READING
