Modern learning theory; a critical analysis of five examples [by] William K. Estes [et al.] with the editorial assistance of A.T. Poffenberger by William K Estes( Book )

21 editions published in 1954 in English and held by 665 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is the product of an experiment in education. A concise and informative prospectus was submitted in the fall of 1949 by the Social Science Research Council to the Carnegie Corporation of New York and provided funds for a seminar to be conducted under the general sponsorship of the council. In the prospectus it was proposed that a group of psychologists meet with the purpose of discussing the status and current problems of learning theory. The informal papers they presented at their meetings are presented again here. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2005 APA, all rights reserved)
Classification and cognition by William K Estes( Book )

29 editions published between 1994 and 2008 in English and held by 659 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on Estes' important Fitts Lectures, this volume details a set of psychological concepts and principles that offers a unified interpretation of a wide variety of memory, categorization, and decision-making phenomena. These phenomena are explained via two families of models established by the author: a storage-retrieval model and an adaptive network model. Estes considers whether the models are competing or complementary, offering cogent and instructive arguments for both perspectives. Estes' theory is then applied to two large-scale series of studies on category learning and recognition, providing an integrated understanding of seemingly disparate phenomena. This book is the culmination of the author's more than ten years of research in the field, and stands as a great achievement by one of this century's eminent psychologists. It will be indispensable to a wide variety of behavioral scientists, including mathematical and cognitive psychologists

Stimulus sampling theory by Edith D Neimark( Book )

11 editions published between 1962 and 1967 in English and Undetermined and held by 347 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Some of the fundamental mathematical techniques of stimuls sampling theory are presented. The simplest of all learning models - the pattern model for simple learning is presented in which the population of available stimulation is ASSUMED TO COMPRISE A SET OF DISTINCT STIMULUS PATTERNS, EXACTLY ONE OF WHICH IS SAMPLED ON EACH TRIAL. In the important special case of the oneelement model, it is assumed that there is only one such pattern and that it recurs intact at the beginning of each experimenta trial. The oneelement model is worthy of study not only for expositional purposes but also for its value as an analytic device in relation to certain types of learning data. After a treatment of pattern models for simple acquisition an for learning under probabilistic reinforcement schedules, the conceptualization of generalization and transfer is discussed; the component models in which the patterns of stimulation effective on individual trials are treated, not as distinct elements, but as overlapping samples from a common population; and, finally, some examples of the more complex multiple-process models which are becoming increasingly important in the analysis of discrimination learning, concept formation, and related phenomena are discussed.
