A thorough survey of the field of learning.

Learning & Behavior covers topics such as classical and operant conditioning, reinforcement schedules, avoidance and punishment, stimulus control, comparative cognition, observational learning, motor skill learning, and choice.

The book includes thorough coverage of classic studies and the most recent developments and trends, while providing examples of real-world applications of the principles discovered in laboratory research.

From the Publisher:

This comprehensive survey describes the basic principles, theories, controversies, and experiments in the field of learning. Focusing on both classic studies and the most recent developments and trends, it deals with how people and animals learn, and how learning impacts behaviors. The emphasis throughout is on the importance of learning principles in everyday life.

From the Back Cover:

Widely adopted for its thoroughness and clarity, this contemporary survey of the field of learning offers comprehensive coverage of both classic studies and the most recent developments and trends — with an emphasis on the importance of learning principles in everyday life. Covers classical conditioning, operant conditioning, aversive control, and stimulus control, habituation, physiological research on learning, comparative cognition, observational learning, and motor skill learning. Explores operant conditioning in depth — both basic studies and principles as well as applications in behavior therapy and modern research.
