Chapter topics include classical conditioning, operant conditioning, avoidance and punishment, theories and research on operant conditioning, stimulus control and concept formation, learning by observation, and much more. For individuals with an interest in psychology—especially learning, conditioning, and the experimental analysis of behavior.
