Photo 5 [27 January 2017] Dr. Philiastides’ lab publishes a paper in Nature Human Behaviour on the influence of perceptual learning in human decision making. The study challenges the long-standing view that perceptual learning alters primarily early sensory representations and offers, compelling evidence that during perceptual categorization, training amplifies the readout of decision-relevant information during post-sensory neural processing instead. Correspondingly, these enhancements predict the behavioural improvements observed on the task, which are further described by a reinforcement learning mechanism that utilises a reward prediction error signal to strengthen the readout of sensory evidence used for the decision. A Commentary on this work is published by Yuka Sasaki and Takeo Watanabe.
