Interactions Between Perceptual and Conceptual Learning

Much of the work in our laboratory is concerned with ways in which human perception depends upon experience, knowledge, training, and perspective. This section provides a taxonomy of mechanisms by which perception is influenced by conception.

We are much indebted to Joe Lee for providing illustrations of each of the mechanisms. Joe Lee is a local Bloomington artist of exceptional talent. His book Clowns for Beginners has recently been published.
