Recruitment of New Visual Cues for Perceptual Appearance

Show Summary Details

Preview

This chapter begins with a discussion of perception and appearance, to provide the background necessary for testing whether changes in appearance occur. Next, it addresses some of the problems that made cue recruitment difficult to study in the past, such as the problem of establishing that a change in behavior is caused by a change in how things look. The chapter then describes a theoretically sensible method to quantify cue recruitment, gives some examples, briefly relates cue recruitment to the animal and computer learning literatures, and finally discusses some of the interesting conceptual issues that arise during consideration of the topic.
