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
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 653 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)

Stimulus sampling theory by Edith D Neimark( Book )

11 editions published between 1962 and 1967 in English and Undetermined and held by 344 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.

From learning theory to connectionist theory by Alice F Healy( Book )

10 editions published in 1992 in English and Undetermined and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These two volumes consist of chapters written by students and colleagues of W.K. Estes. The books' contributors -- themselves eminent figures in the field -- reflect on Estes' sweeping contributions to mathematical as well as cognitive and experimental psychology. As indicated by their titles, Volume I features mathematical and theoretical essays, and Volume II presents cognitive and experimental essays. Both volumes contain insightful literature reviews as well as descriptions of exciting new theoretical and empirical advances. Many of the essays also incorporate personal reminiscences reflec

Transfer of response in visual recognition situations as a function of frequence variables by Arnold Binder( Book )

6 editions published in 1966 in English and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A series of 6 experiments investigated the principles required to account quantitatively for responses of human Ss to new combinations of cues following discrimination learning. In the training phase of each experiment, Ss learned to make identifying responses (numerical labels) to sets of stimuli (pairs of nonsense syllables) under a paired-associate procedure. After a fixed number of acquisition trials Ss were tested on stimulus compounds involving new combinations of the training cues. In all experiments a substantial proportion of variance in the test data was accounted for by a model embodying the additive rule and the probability matching rule of stimulus sampling theory. In cases when training had been conducted under standard discrimination paradigms, responses to test compounds were quite well accounted for by this model without auxiliary principles. Ss exhibited preferences for low ambiguity cues in test compounds only when this preference had been differentially reinforced during training. Under a variety of circumstances, predictions from the stimulus sampling model could be improved by the addition of a 'relative novelty' principle, stating that, other things being equal, Ss tend to sample from test compounds the cues that had occurred least frequently during previous training
Handbook of learning and cognitive processes by William K Estes( Book )

24 editions published between 1975 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Foreword: ""Is it possible at present to identify a core cluster of theoretical ideas, concepts, and methods with which everyone working in the area of learning and cognition needs to be familiar? Would it be possible to make explicit the relationships that we feel do or must exist among the various subspecialties, ranging from conditioning through perceptual learning and memory to psycholinguistics, and to present these in a sufficiently organized way to help specialists and non-specialists alike in relating particular lines of research to the broader spectrum of activity?T

This book concludes a six-volume review of research and theory on learning and cognition. Its six chapters cover the following topics: theories of semantic memory, comprehension and memory of text, coding processes in memory, perceptual learning from reading, speech perception, and the organization and core concepts of learning theory and cognitive psychology. The book also contains author and subject indexes. (Fl)
