Operating characteristics of the implicit procedural learning system

Sanchez, D.J., Gobel, E.W., Reber, P.J. CNADC 16th Annual Alzheimer Day. May 6th, 2010. The majority of actions we take to accomplish everyday activities are based around routine behaviors. The procedural learning involved in developing a routine behavior, or skill, relies on an implicit memory system preserved in patients with Alzheimer’s disease. Rooted in the …

Stretching the implicit muscle: A parametric study of perceptual-motor sequence learning using extended sequence lengths.

Sanchez, D.J. & Reber, P.J. Cognitive Neuroscience Society Meeting 2010. Perceptual-motor sequence learning has an extensive research history, but most studies have relied on using short sequences of five to twelve items. Utilizing a new Serial Interception Sequence Learning (SISL) task, the implicit learning of longer motor sequences was examined to explore the learning rate …

Performing the unexplainable: Implicit task performance reveals individually reliable sequence learning without explicit knowledge

Sanchez, D. J., Gobel, E. W., & Reber, P. J. (2010). Performing the unexplainable: Implicit task performance reveals individually reliable sequence learning without explicit knowledge. Psychonomic Bulletin & Review, 17(6), 790-796. Memory-impaired patients express intact implicit perceptual-motor sequence learning, but it has been difficult to obtain a similarly clear dissociation in healthy participants. When explicit …

Individual dissociation between implicit and explicit knowledge on perceptual-motor learning.

Sanchez, D.J. & Reber, P.J. Society for Neuroscience 2009. The sequence of motor operations involved in performing a procedural task is often difficult to describe verbally even when it can be easily performed after training. Previous research using the serial reaction time task has shown group level dissociations between implicit and explicit perceptual-motor sequence knowledge …
