An Analysis of Sequential Variables in Pavlovian Conditioning: A Similar Ruleset Predicts both Pavlovian and Instrumental Conditioning Outcomes

 
9783639110128: An Analysis of Sequential Variables in Pavlovian Conditioning: A Similar Ruleset Predicts both Pavlovian and Instrumental Conditioning Outcomes

For many years, there has been a basic distinction made between Pavlovian and Instrumental Conditioning. While the two forms of conditioning are similar, a basic distinction made between them has been the partial reinforcement effect (PREE), which seems to only occur in instrumental conditioning. In fact, in Mackintosh's seminal work "The Psychology of Animal Learning" the PREE was used as a fundamental distinction between Pavlovian and Instrumental conditioning. This set of experiments sought to apply Capaldi's sequential theory, where memories of prior trials help predict current trials, etc., to the somewhat intractable problem of the Pavlovian PREE. The question was whether sequential theory could predict the Pavlovian PREE, its occurrence, strength, etc. This was accomplished successfully. The results imply that Pavlovian and Instrumental conditioning may actually be the same form of conditioning as revealed when analyzed utilizing sequential theory.
