  • Line orientation discrimination improves with selective practice for oblique orientations and not for principal orientations. This training effect was observed with an identification task as well as with two alternative forced choice tasks. Despite the improvement for oblique orientations, just noticeable differences in orientation are still larger for the practised oblique orientation than for the principal orientations after 5000 practice trials. These findings suggest that the oblique effect… CONTINUE READING
