Abstract(in English) This study demonstrates implicit learning of complex visual regularity of line-drawn schematic faces. The complexity of visual regularity was increased by adopting a compound rule and by allowing a range of parameter values for rule-defining facial characteristics. Incidental learning of visual regularity during a series of recognition-memory tests was made harder by presenting a large number of study faces that varied on other facial characteristics that were presumably more salient than the rule-defining facial characteristics. In subsequent regularity-judgment tests, subjects were able to discriminate between novel positive and negative exemplars of the defined regularity at above-chance levels. Leaning appeared to be implicit in that subjects were unaware of the very knowledge that seemed responsible for their decisions in regularity judgment.
