Category formation lies at the heart of a number of higher-order behaviors, including lan-
guage. We assessed the ability of human adults to learn, from distributional information
alone, categories embedded in a sequence of input stimuli using a serial reaction time task.
Artificial grammars generated corpora of input strings containing a predetermined and
