We previously showed that perceptual learning was disrupted when bisection stimuli with short outer line distances were presented randomly interleaved trial-by-trial with bisection stimuli with long outer line distances, so called roving. Here, we went to the other extreme and presented short and long bisection stimuli in separate, directly following sessions. It has been previously reported that such a presentation regime disrupts consolidation of perceptual learning. However, we found no disruption of learning, neither with our bisection stimuli nor with the same experimental setup used in a previous study. We propose that consolidation in perceptual learning with simple stimuli is either rapid or cannot be disrupted.
