Abstract
 

In many perceptual domains, enhanced sensitivity to discrimination relevant dimensions, or perceptual learning, develops with repeated exposures. On one hand, layout perception maybe relatively direct, requiring no familiarity with a scene for efficient processing. In contrast, familiarity with a scene may allow for the rapid extraction of scene properties that support layout judgments. A series of experiments investigated whether scene-specific perceptual learning develops as a function of experience with a given photographic or synthetic scene. Subjects were instructed to indicate the closer of two cued locations within a given scene. Neither of these cued locations within a scene repeated. Savings accrued across the experiment such that responses were faster overall. Further, the savings were greatest with repeated scenes. However, this learning was greater with photographic stimuli.
