Using Computational Methods to Characterize Implicit Sequence Learning Poster session D (Mon 8-10am), poster #119 Kelsey R Thompson1, Paul J Reber1;1Northwestern University Implicit learning involves extracting statistical variation from the environment in order to improve behavior. Because knowledge of environmental structure is acquired outside of awareness, it is challenging to determine the precise nature of …

Rapid learning of higher-order statistics in implicit sequence learning K. R. Thompson & P. J. Reber Implicit learning involves extracting experienced regularities and statistical variation from the environment in order to improve behavior. Because knowledge of environmental structure is acquired outside of awareness, it is challenging to determine the precise nature of the information that …

Abstract: Implicit learning involves extracting experienced regularities and statistical variation from the environment in order to improve behavior. Because knowledge of environmental structure is acquired outside of awareness, it is challenging to determine the precise nature of the information that is obtained from experience. A commonly used paradigm to study this implicit learning process is …

Ego Depletion Impairs Implicit Learning

Thompson, K. R., Sanchez, D. J., Wesley, A. H., & Reber, P. J. (2014). Ego Depletion Impairs Implicit Learning. PloS one, 9(10), e109370. Implicit skill learning occurs incidentally and without conscious awareness of what is learned. However, the rate and effectiveness of learning may still be affected by decreased availability of central processing resources during …

Using EEG to Identify Neural Signatures of Implicit Sequence Learning Kelsey R. Thompson, Laura Batterink, Ken A. Paller, Paul J. Reber Implicit learning reflects a reshaping of neural circuits through extensive practiceand occurs largely outside of conscious awareness. The Serial Interception Sequence Learning (SISL) task provides a relatively process-pure measure of implicit motor sequence learning. …
