Cognitive Neuroscience Society 2013 (San Francisco, CA)

Mind the gap: Flexible use of explicit knowledge during skilled sequence performance. Daniel J. Sanchez & Paul J. Reber Implicit and explicit learning play distinct roles in skill acquisition based on their different operating characteristics. It is hypothesized that implicit learning leads to increasingly fluid action sequence performance while explicit knowledge provides top-down control and …

Statistical learning in perceptual-motor sequences and planning effects in performance (PDF) Daniel J. Sanchez1, Hristo Bojinov2, Patrick D. Lincoln3, Dan Boneh2, Paul J. Reber1 1: Northwestern University (Psychology), 2: Stanford University (Computer Science), 3: SRI (Computer Science Laboratory) The performance improvements that underlie motor skill expertise rely on implicit learning within cortico-striatal circuits connecting the …

The Research Works Act

Here’s an interesting NY Times Opinion piece on some bill going forward that would stop NIH from requiring grantees to provide copies of their papers. Tax dollars funding our research is especially touchy in the given economy, so it seems like this would be another bit of negative news to the researchers just wanting to …

Explicit knowledge influences consolidation but not immediate performance in implicit skill learning Sanchez, D.J., & Reber, P.J. (2011) Society for Neuroscience. Perceptual-motor sequence learning has often been used as a task for dissociating the neural mechanisms and operating characteristics of the explicit and implicit memory systems. Although neuropsychological and behavioral evidence indicate separable memory systems …

Neuroscience Meets Cryptography: Designing Crypto Primitives Secure Against Rubber Hose Attacks

Bojinov, H., Sanchez, D., Reber, P., Boneh, D., & Lincoln, P. (2012). Neuroscience meets cryptography: Designing crypto primitives secure against rubber hose attacks. Paper presented at the 21st USENIX Security Symposium. Cryptographic systems often rely on the secrecy of cryptographic keys given to users. However, many schemes cannot resist coercion attacks where the user is …

Title: Coordinated action and timing responses separated across hands are integrated in sequence learning. (PDF) Area: Cognitive Neuroscience of Learning and Memory. Problem or Major Purpose: Skill learning relies on a flexible explicit set of actions to perform which provides scaffolding for the relatively inflexible implicit representation supporting performance improvements through practice. A key question …
