An influential theoretical perspective differentiates in humans an explicit, rule-based system of category
learning from an implicit system that slowly associates different regions of perceptual space with
different response outputs. This perspective was extended for the 1st time to the category learning of
nonhuman primates. Humans (Homo sapiens) and macaques (Macacca mulatta) learned categories
composed of sine-wave gratings that varied across trials in bar width and bar orientation. The categories
had either a single-dimensional, rule-based solution or a two-dimensional, information integration
