Recent selected publications and reprint list

Current Projects

  • Implicit skill learning and memory systems: the interacting roles of consciously directed action sequences and the process of developing skilled expertise
  • Cognitive expertise and accelerating learning through repeated simulation-based practice (CERES), funded by ONR.
  • Perceptual-motor sequence learning: operating characteristics of the implicit procedural learning system: flexibility, transfer and types of knowledge
  • Intuitive decision making and the role of implicit learning in learning to trust hunches

Some links to Adobe Flash applets we hope to use to study learning:

  • Want to see our new SISL task in action? Here it is.
  • Want to see the old Balls and Boxes puzzle task? Here it is.
