Psychology of Learning and Behavior
24 October 2001
Now in its Fifth Edition, Psychology of Learning and Behavior is one of the most highly regarded texts in its field.
Barry Schwartz, Steven
Robbins, and new coauthor Edward Wasserman offer students an engaging
introduction to the basic principles of Pavlovian conditioning, operant
conditioning, and comparative cognition. The text’s critical approach
exposes students to the unresolved problems and controversies
surrounding behavior theory and encourages them to interpret the
material and make connections between theories and real-life
situations. With several hundred new references, a new emphasis on
comparative cognition, and expanded treatment of neuroscience and the
neural basis of learning, the Fifth Edition sets the standard in its
coverage of contemporary theory and research.
