Issues in acquiring interactive routines

Prior work has shown that improvement with practice on a simple decision making task may not be due to changes in decision-making strategies, but may result from the adaptation of primarily perceptual-motor routines to the design of the task environment. This hypothesis was supported by a series of computational cognitive models that produced performance speedups due to an increased interleaving of cognitive, perceptual, and motor operations for subtask performance. Our attention has now turned to how these speedups may be acquired with practice. Using a reinforcement learning based approach, attempts to model the speedup have focused our attention on the span of effort over which reinforcement should be calculated.
