Shortening the road to expertise: Integrating implicit and explicit knowledge

Sage 4101

Although expertise is highly prized, it often takes many years to attain rapid and effective performance in a domain. This characteristic makes it difficult to study the role of implicit and explicit learning processes (and the way these processes interact) in real world experts. Thus, our research studies these learning processes in laboratory tasks that have many of the features ( e.g., noisy feedback, dynamic systems, complexity) which characterize the development of expertise in natural settings. Our results suggest that implicit and explicit knowledge can interact synergistically or detrimentally depending on a number of factors. We discuss the ramifications of these findings for theories of cognition and behavioral control (e.g., self-regulation).
