About this title


This unique two-volume set provides detailed coverage of contemporary learning theory. Uniting leading experts in modern behavioral theory, these texts give students a complete view of the field. Volume I details the complexities of Pavlovian conditioning and describes the current status of traditional learning theories. Volume II discusses several important facets of instrumental conditioning and presents comprehensive coverage of the role of inheritance on learning.

A strong and complete base of knowledge concerning learning theories, these volumes are ideal reference sources for advanced students and professionals in experimental psychology, learning and learning theory, and comparative physiology.


As long as learning theory continues to serve as a catalyst for further experimentation, it must be regarded as making a substantial contribution towards our understanding of the mechanisms of associative learning.
The Quarterly Journal of Experimental Psychology

....the articles in the book provide useful summaries of recent work and can be recommended to researchers and advanced undergraduates alike.
The Quarterly Journal of Experimental Psychology

...these contributors represent a cadre that will influence conditioning research for another generation or two.... Wagner views his model as being connectionist in nature. If connectionist modeling does not degenerate into a curve-fitting excercise, it should become prominent in conditioning research. Moreover, connectionist models may provide a framework for accomodating conditioning theory to the rapid advances in our understanding of the neural substrates of conditioning.
