  • SEVERAL examples of experience-dependent perceptual improve-ment (perceptual learning) suggest that plasticity in specific neu-ronal loci could underlie the learning process1–6. For a basic visual discrimination task (using an optimal stimulus for ‘automatic’ pre-attentive texture segregation7–10), discrete retinal input-dependent changes within a very early stage in the stream of visual processing were indicated as the locus of a large and consistent learning effect5. When do these changes… CONTINUE READING
