How mental imagery training aids perceptual learning

It's all in your head. No, really: How mental imagery training aids perceptual learning (12/11/2009)

Practice makes perfect. But imaginary practice? Elisa Tartaglia of the Laboratory of Psychophysics at Switzerland's Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL) and team show that perceptual learning-learning by repeated exposure to a stimulus-can occur by mental imagery as much as by the real thing. The results, published in Current Biology, suggest that thinking about something over and over again could actually be as good as doing it.



"When trained, radiologists are able to detect anomalies on medical images which are extremely hard to detect for untrained people," Tartaglia says. "The results of our study would predict that mental imagery training, hence, repeatedly mentally visualizing the anomalies that one wants to detect, would be sufficient to become able to detect them."

Chainsaw


Old Bert had worked for the local landscaping company as man and boy, over 50 years and was still using a bow saw for most of the tree work. As a by-line the landscaping company would cut and sell all the wood for firewood. Bert could easily cut 2 stacks of wood with his trusty bow saw.

Bert’s old friend and boss had said a number of times over the years that he should use a chainsaw. Bert would always say he was not interested in these new fangled things and he could do it quicker by hand.

As the years passed and the aches and pains got worse in Bert’s back and upper limbs, he started to think there must be an easier way.

The new production manager soon saw there was and opportunity to increase production and reduce the pain and suffering to this trusted old workman. He told Bert he would buy him a new chainsaw and he would be able to cut 6 stacks of wood a day and reduce the aches and pains by half. Bert finally agreed.

The first couple days were not very productive--he only cut one stack each day. By the third day he had cut 3 stacks but was dead tired. "This is not working," he thought to himself, "the production manager said I should be able to cut 6 stacks a day. I'm taking this stupid thing back to the office."
The next day he was in the production managers office complaining to the manager about his lack of production. "Blade seems a little dull, but not that bad. Let's start it up," the production manager muttered as he pulled the starting cord.


"What the hell is that noise?" Bert hollered.

Size does matter


The Client, Principal Contractor and the CDM-C had a big debate on the specification of the steel work in the design of the project. It was decided the steel work had to be upgraded.

The site agent sent 2 of his workers to the local builders merchant to collect some RSJ’s he had ordered to fit the new specification. The men used the sites JCB and drove to the builders merchant. One of the men walked in the office and says, "We have come to collect some eight-by-four RSJ’s."

The counter assistant replies, "You mean four-by-eights, don't you?"

The guy scratches his head and says, "I'll go check," and goes back to his mate in the JCB.

He returns and says, "Yeah, I meant four-by-eights."

"All right. How long do you need them?"

The guy pauses for a minute and says, "I better go check." After a while, he returns to the office and says, "A long time. We're gonna build a warehouse."
