Intended for learning courses within psychology departments, such as conditioning and learning, this text gives students an introduction to contemporary issues in learning and behaviour. It provides a systematic introduction to elementary forms of learning that have been the focus of research for much of the 20th century. Biological constraints on learning are integrated throughout the text, as are applications boxes that relate animal research to human learning and behaviour. The book is organized so that each chapter builds on the previous one and simpler phenomena (habituation and sensitization) are described before more complicated ones. Within each chapter, information is also presented in increasing order of complexity. Throughout, analogies and examples help simplify and clarify concepts. This revision includes the recent scientific research and current ideas. 500 new references are included that reflect advances in the field that have taken place in the last seven years.
