Summary

Each exercise begins with a short lesson, and then has short assignments that range from 1 minute to 30 minutes worth of work—some are short answer, some are projects, and some are more involved. The workbook also incorporates users exercises for SNIFFY THE VIRTUAL RAT, VERSION 2.0.

The book covers habituation, classical conditioning, instrumental conditioning, stimulus control, aversive control, and their applications to the study of cognition and to the alleviation of behavior problems. Biological constraints on learning are integrated throughout the book, as are applications boxes that relate animal research to human learning and behavior.
