My research currently focus on human associative learning using the "streaming" procedure originally developed by Lorraine Allan and her team at McMaster University. In this procedure, the participants are exposed to rapid flows of stimuli, each stimuli lasting around 100 ms. At the end of a flow, they have to indicate whether one of the stimuli (the outcome) can be predicted on the basis of another (the cue). Such procedure allows for a signal detection approach to associative learning. In such an approach, the subject's performance is seen as the outcome of three independent processes: the participant's subjective estimation of the predictive relation between the cue and the outcome, the noise ins this estimation, and a decision threshold that determines the participant's beliefs regarding the predictive relation between the cue and the outcome. I am currently using this approach to investigate the role of temporal variables in human associative learning as well as to illuminate various questions related to associative interference.
