Abstract:

The report concerns a demonstration of an adaptively controlled perceptual discrimination experiment. The adaptation rule chosen for demonstration purposes is almost absurdly simple and a rather more elaborate system is used in the main experimental programme. The chief aim is to provide a readily manipulable application of this experimental method and to suggest further applications. This method has been used chiefly in connection with explicit learning experiments or in adaptively controlled teaching. In the present arrangement the learning that occurs is implicit and, in a sense, is an unwanted effect. The adaptive system can be said to compensate for the effects of learning and to approximate a stationary measurement condition. Author
