My current research wants to explore the link that must exist between the learning curve seen in learning situations with the RT distribution that are seen at every single session of learning.
Skill acquisition and task learning
The law of practice and curve analyses
implementing predictions on RT
general constraints to obtain a power-curve
possible class of neural networks that have a power learning curve
Familiarity and automaticity
dividing the effect of automaticity and of familiarity into:
structural component task learning
specific task information learning
RT distributions
The role of categories in learning automatic task
The role of similarity in learning automatic task
Visual search:
Predicting slopes processing using feature based model
Predicting intercepts processing using perceptual learningv
Untangle the role of structural task learning from stimulus-specific learning:
within-trial learning
between-trial learning
Statistical methods:
Distribution analysis (Weibull distribution, Lognormal distribution)
Chi-square test of goodness of fit
Log-likelihood fitting method
Likelihood ratio test (LRT) used to compare two models
