This chapter presents several sources of evidence that point out that perceptual learning is early in several senses: neurological, functional, and developmental. It also discusses perceptual learning via unitization and differentiation. The chapter also examines the basic workings of conceptual and perceptual learning by the unitization and segmentation model or CPLUS. This model applies competitive learning to the problem of segmentation by uniting complex configurations and differentiating input patterns into separate categories.

Keywords:   perceptual learning, unitization, differentiation, CPLUS, segmentation
