9780070631175: Contemporary Learning Theory and Research

This is a thorough and scholarly discussion of basic learning, primarily drawing from the research on the conditioning of animal subjects. It is written for the sophomore-junior course in learning with general psychology as the only prerequisite. The text nicely balances clarity and appeal with thoroughness and scholarship.Tarpy's primary orientation is cognitive, stressing the way in which knowledge is represented, information is processed and stored and decisions are made. The second important focus covers the ecological relevance of learning--how basic learning mechanisms process information so that various species may behave more adaptively in their own environmental niche.
