Departmental Bulletin Paper 〈原著論文〉変化検出課題における空間レイアウトの文脈学習

遠藤, 信貴

Visual context, such as a spatial relationship between the locations of a particular target object and the other distractor objects, is learned with repeated presentations of the same spatial layout, and facilitates searching for or detecting the target object. This context learning is referred to as contextual cueing. Previous studies have demonstrated that learned context involved the association target location with individual locations of distractors (nonconfigural learning) and the association target location with the overall distractor configuration (configural learning) in visual search and change detection tasks respectively, indicating that the content of context learning was task specific. The purpose of the present study was to examine whether the content of context learning relied on participants’ attentional control setting during performing change detection task. The results showed that nonconfigural learning tended to occur even in change detection task when it was necessary for detecting the target effectively to direct spatial attention to individual distractors, suggesting the possibility that the aspect of context learning is dependent on participants’ attentional setting.
