Abstract : The report is the fifth semi-annual progress report on a research program titled 'Parameters of Human Pattern Perception.' Empirical development during this period has included: (1) Exploration of feature selection processes through sequential presentation paradigms and specification of statistical principles influencing these processes. (2) Elaboration of the schema plus correction hypothesis, along with a general methodology for studying visual pattern storage. (3) Investigation of the effects of extra-stimulus information (context) on pattern recognition performance. Progress on theoretical development has included elaboration of a general pattern recognition model, specification of a feature selection mechanism, and exploration of the utility of multivariate models.
