Fall 2006 Grad
*.50 c.u. Meets September 11 through October 27, 2006
A discussion of basic learning processes, particularly as illustrated in nonhuman organisms. Topics include how organisms learn about events themselves (e.g., habituation), how they learn relations among events (e.g., Pavlovian conditioning), and how they learn relations between their own behavior and events (e.g., instrumental learning). Emphasis is placed upon current data and theories. This is a "Mind"sector course.
