Observer models of perceptual development.

Nardini, M. and Dekker, T.M. (2019) 'Observer models of perceptual development.', Behavioral and brain sciences., 41 . e238.


We agree with Rahnev & Denison (R&D) that to understand perception at a process level, we must investigate why performance sometimes deviates from idealised decision models. Recent research reveals that such deviations from optimality are pervasive during perceptual development. We argue that a full understanding of perception requires a model of how perceptual systems become increasingly optimised during development.
