Abstract

This chapter describes two research projects that evaluated whether people's judgments are predicted by those of the standard ideal observer in more complex situations. The first project, conducted by Michel and Jacobs (2008), examined how people learn to combine information from arbitrary visual features when performing a set of perceptual discrimination tasks. The second project, conducted by Brouwer and Knill (2007, 2009), examined how people combine location information from vision and memory in a sensorimotor task.
