based classiWcation, an important form of explicit learning,

lus-to-label association that associates stimuli and category

category labels and responses. Three experiments investi-

important form of implicit learning, is also mediated by two
separate learned associations. Participants were trained on a
rule-based or an information­integration categorization
task and then the association between stimulus and cate-
