Training exercises can improve perceptual sensitivities. We examined whether progressively training humans and rats to perform a difficult auditory identification task led to larger improvements than extensive training with highly similar sounds (the easy-to-hard effect). Practice improved humans' ability to distinguish sounds regardless of the training regimen. However, progressively trained participants were more accurate and showed more generalization, despite significantly less trainingdoi:10.1037/0735-7036.122.2.132 pmid:18489229 pmcid:PMC2664539 fatcat:tekffsas3bhzvhd5wp5lioi3uy
