Perceptual learning is defined as long-term improvement in perceptual or sensory systems resulting from repeated practice or experience. As the number of perceptual learning studies has increased, controversies and questions have arisen regarding divergent aspects of perceptual learning, including: (1) stages in which perceptual learning occurs, (2) effects of training type, (3) changes in neural processing during the time course of learning, (4) effects of feedback as to correctness of a subject's responses, and (5) double training. Here we review each of these aspects and suggest fruitful directions for future perceptual learning research.
