Abstract

When searching for a target in the visual scene, such as for your red car, performance depends on the strategy chosen (e.g., searching for red things vs. things with wheels), and research has revealed widespread suboptimality of strategy. Explicit strategy instruction can improve choice, but can the improvement generalize across separate tasks that retain similar strategy components?
