Using CogLab, perform the implicit learning experiment and create a report on the experiment.
In your report, write a brief introduction explaining the differences between implicit and explicit learning.
Next, in the Methods section, describe the process that you followed to complete the experiment, including material requirements and stimuli description. Make sure to include enough information so that others could also perform the same experiment successfully. Finally, describe the experimental results. Summarize your report, including answers to the following questions:
- Were the results in accordance with your expectations? Provide a rationale to support your answer.
- Did you feel like you were learning the patterns that occurred? Did your reaction time get faster with each attempt?
- Did anything about the experiment surprise you? If yes, what?
- What factors can influence the results of the implicit learning experiment?
