How Experience Shapes Visual Perception
Barbara Dosher, Zhong-Lin Lu
A comprehensive and integrated introduction to the phenomena and theories of perceptual learning, focusing on the visual domain.
Practice or training in perceptual tasks improves the quality of perceptual performance, often by a substantial amount. This improvement is called perceptual learning (in contrast to learning in the cognitive or motor domains), and it has become an active area of research of both theoretical and practical significance. This book offers a comprehensive introduction to the phenomena and theories of perceptual learning, focusing on the visual domain.
