About the Edition

The present research explored whether inhibitory mechanisms derived from latent inhibition (LI) can interfere with stereotype expression. In particular, five studies explored whether irrelevant pre-exposure to attractive and unattractive individuals influenced selective attention mechanisms to subsequently guide attention away from stimulus features related to attractiveness. Inherent in this logic is the notion that if attention is guided away from stimulus features related to attractiveness, biased interpretations and discriminatory responses resulting from the activation of evaluations and stereotype content associated with attractiveness may be circumvented.Study 5 explored this issue using a modified evaluative priming procedure that included stereotype and non-stereotype traits as target words. LI interfered with the automatic activation of evaluations under these stimulus conditions. This finding suggests, therefore, that the failure to observe a moderating effect of LI on explicit personality judgments may have been caused by specific processes evoked during the person perception task.Findings are discussed in terms of how chronic cognitive associations pertaining to stereotypes interact with attentional mechanisms in social judgment processes.Study 1 demonstrated LI using the attractiveness of perceived individuals as the target stimulus. Participants who had experienced irrelevant pre-exposure to attractive and unattractive individuals had more difficulty subsequently learning a contingency based on attractiveness than participants who had no such pre-exposure. Study 2 revealed that irrelevant pre-exposure to attractive and unattractive individuals subsequently interferes with automatic activation of evaluations on the basis of attractiveness when indexed by an evaluative priming procedure. Studies 3 and 4, however, revealed that irrelevant pre-exposure to attractive and unattractive individuals failed to moderate the influence of attractiveness on explicit personality judgments. One possible reason for this disparity in effects is that processes evoked by the person perception task rendered attractiveness very salient, and this salience may call attention back to this construct even when LI has guided attention away from it. It was also possible, however, that the stimulus conditions created by the presentation of stereotype target traits in combination with clearly attractive and unattractive faces was responsible for the failure of LI to mitigate stereotype expression.

Nelson and Rawlings' study suggests that positive schizotypy, latent inhibition, and flow are intimately related. A lot more research needs to be done, however, in order to more fully understand. Latent inhibition. Contrary to working memory, Openness is negatively associated with latent inhibition. Latent inhibition explains what happens when we "get used to" familiar stimuli (sights, tastes, feelings, sounds, smells, routines). When you are familiar with a stimulus, you tend to ignore the details that you would otherwise pay attention.

  Latent inhibition is an exquisitely simple, robust and pervasive behavioural phenomenon - the reduced ability of an organism to learn new associations to previously inconsequential stimuli. It has been demonstrated in a variety of animals, including humans, across many different learning tasks/5(2).   Low Latent Inhibition. So maybe it's initial shock, with some padding to cushion the blow once it all sinks in. As opposed to absolute and total obliviousness like the majority who about their merry way.

Low latent inhibition and social perks I was remembering today how the weeks before my pychothic breakdown were awesome socially. It felt like I was completely in control of every situation, almost like if I could read people's minds. The days of getting eminent creators to take the MMPI or EPQ are long gone, with the classic studies done in the s and '60s. Eysenck's work is a research integration of work published much earlier. More recent work tends to focus on specific components, such as the research on latent inhibition Cited by:

Latent inhibition is a phenomenon by which exposure to an irrelevant stimulus impedes the acquisition or expression of conditioned associations with that stimulus. Latent inhibition, an integral part of the learning process, is observed in many species.5/5(2). Book Description.

Latent inhibition is an exquisitely simple, robust, and pervasive behavioural phenomenon - the reduced ability of an organism to learn new associations to previously inconsequential stimuli. It has been demonstrated in a variety of animals, 5/5(1). Latent inhibition, an integral part of the learning process, is observed in many species.

This comprehensive collection of studies of latent inhibition, from a variety of disciplines including behavioural/cognitive psychology, neuroscience and genetics, focuses on abnormal latent inhibition effects in schizophrenic patients and schizotypal normals.

The ease of demonstrating the latent inhibition effect, on the one hand, is matched by the difficulty of incorporating it into contemporary conditioning and learning theories, on the other. Lubow offers a complete survey of the basic data that comprise the latent inhibition effect and a review of theories that attempt to explain it.

Latent inhibition Latent inhibition goes social book, a phenomenon that reflects an outcome from the processing of irrelevant stimuli, has been of interest to the research community for five decades. And, if. Latent inhibition (LI) is demonstrated when a previously unattended stimulus is less effective in a new learning situation than a novel, or previously attended, stimulus.

The term, “latent inhibition,” dates back to Lubow and Moore. The LI effect is “latent” in that it is not exhibited in. lus, and that latent inhibition affects affective conditioning. When an affectively neutral stimulus (either a fla- vor, an olfactory stimulus, a word, or a picture) is.

Natalie Marsh joins Uncomfortable Conversations With Gregory to discuss the problems of unconventional, exceptional thinkers trying to thrive in a conventional world. Neuro atypicals, including those with Low Latent Inhibition (LLI), Autism, ADHD, and so on, must learn to construct their own societies in a world not made for how they naturally are, in spite [ ].

Latent inhibition is a process by which exposure to a stimulus of little or no consequence prevents conditioned associations with that stimulus being formed.

The ability to disregard or even inhibit formation of memory, by preventing associative learning of observed stimuli, is an automatic response and is thought to prevent information overload. Latent inhibition is observed in many species, and is.

Latent inhibition is a technical term used in classical conditioning to refer to the observation that a familiar stimulus takes longer to acquire meaning (as a signal or conditioned stimulus) than a new stimulus. The term "latent inhibition" dates back to Lubow and Moore.

The LI effect is "latent" in that it is not exhibited in the stimulus pre-exposure phase, but rather in the subsequent test. Although the mental process is an automatic reaction, there are still people who find it difficult to disregard stimuli.

These people are said to possess a low latent inhibition, making them notice irrelevant and trivial stimuli. People with this trait are easily distracted and highly sensitive; both traits may lead to social ineptness. Latent inhibition is the phenomenon whereby simple pre-exposure to a neutral cue impairs learning about that same cue when it is later paired with a biologically salient event.

In standard conditioning, rats exposed to pairings of a light with a shock will develop conditioned fear to the light. Latent inhibition The ability to filter out extraneous stimuli, concentrating only on the information that is deemed relevant.

Reduced latent inhibition is associated with higher creativity. Little-c creativity Creative ideas that appear at the personal level, whether the home or the workplace. Latent inhibition (LI) is the reduced efficacy of a previously exposed, inconsequential stimulus to generate a conditioned response when paired with reinforcement, compared with a novel stimulus.

LI is extremely robust, appearing across many different learning paradigms and. Latent inhibition (LI) is a robust phenomenon in which repeated preexposure to a stimulus that is not reinforced retards future associability to that stimulus (Lubow,).

Lubow offers a complete survey of the basic data that comprise the latent inhibition effect, and a review of theories that attempt to explain it. He then elaborates on his own Conditioned Attention Theory and derives applications for learned helplessness and schizophrenia.

However, "failure" to screen out previously irrelevant stimuli might also hypothetically contribute to original thinking, particularly in Cited by:   Latent inhibition is a phenomenon by which exposure to an irrelevant stimulus impedes the acquisition or expression of conditioned associations with that stimulus.

A University of Toronto press release on the study explained, “Other people’s brains might shut out this same information through a process called ‘latent inhibition’ – defined as an animal’s unconscious capacity to ignore stimuli that experience has shown are irrelevant to its needs.With low latent inhibition, an individual can almost treat familiar stimuli in the same manner as they would new stimuli.

Think of the details you notice when you see something new for the first time and how it grabs your attention. From that all kinds of questions may arise in your mind.It’s a fascinating topic and i would urge everyone here to read the book. “The future of the mind” by Micho Kaku.
