Implicit Learning Out of the Lab: Language and Music

Abstract

Implicit learning, essentially the ability to acquire unconscious (implicit) knowledge, is a fundamental aspect of human cognition. This symposium focuses on the acquisition of two cognitive systems that are widely regarded as prime examples of implicit learning “in the real world”, namely language and music (see e.g. Rebuschat et al., 2011; Rohrmeier & Rebuschat, 2012). This symposium brings together leading researchers from across the cognitive sciences (psychology, linguistics, cognitive neuroscience, computer science, and musicology) in order to discuss current trends in implicit learning research, to identify the progress made in recent years, and to outline future directions to take, both in terms of topics and novel methodologies.
