Learning by Sarnoff A Mednick( Book )

58 editions published between 1964 and 1980 in 8 languages and held by 1,445 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The facts of learning are among the basic facts of behavior. For this reason learning principles have been applied in a variety of fields. In education, teaching machines are a direct product of operant conditioning principles; the teaching machine is likely to be an opening wedge in an application of learning principles to the field of education. In industrial and defense applications, principles of the learning of motor skills are crucial in the design of man-machine systems. This list only begins to scratch the surface of the topic, and this book addresses the salient basic facts gathered to date concerning the learning process
The Causes of crime : new biological approaches( Book )

22 editions published between 1986 and 2009 in English and held by 756 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this century, social factors have dominated theories of antisocial behaviour to the near-exclusion of other explanatory variables in the study of criminology. Criminologists are now coming to realise that fully understanding the causes of criminality requires consideration of both social and biological variables and that their models must take into account the interaction of the two. Reports of the relevant scientific work have previously been scattered through journals with varying disciplinary and geographical limitations. The book presents state-of-the-art investigation into the biological factors that produce criminal activity from authorities in nine countries who are on the forefront of research in behaviour genetics, neurophysiology, biochemistry, neuropsychology, psychophysiology, psychiatry and sociology. The Causes of Crime: New Biological Approaches offers the first comprehensive overview and integration of this new field of enquiry. It will be an invaluable resource for everyone concerned with the causes of criminal behaviour and interventions to reduce its frequency

Prospective studies of crime and delinquency by Katherine Teilmann Van Dusen( Book )

11 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Katherine Teilmann Van Dusen and Sarnoff A. Mednick This introduction delineates what we consider to be three of the most important impediments to the advance of knowledge in the field of criminology. The most fundamental need is for more studies of the nature and progress of criminal and delinquent careers. The second need is for more prospective, longitudinal studies of the etiology of crime and delinquency. The third need concerns the lack of interdisciplinary research toward a more integrated understanding of delinquent and criminal behavior. Criminal and Delinquent Careers The birth cohort study by Wolfgang, Figlio and Sellin (1972) was heralded by many (Farrington, 1973; Erickson, 1973; Weis, 1974) as a landmark which allowed researchers to study the course of delinquency without the usual sampling biases that plagued other, cross-sectional research. For the first time, we could get a reasonable picture of when delinquency usually starts, what proportion of the population engages in delinquency, what types of delinquencies they engage in, what proportion continue, and so on. Cross sectional studies do not permit the investigation of careers because cross 1 PROSPECTIVE STUDIES OF CRIME AND DELINQUENCY 2 sectional sampling includes only portions of careers for many of the individuals sampled. This is just one of the many problems that restricted researchers' ability to study the nature of criminal careers

Schizotypal personality( Book )

10 editions published between 1995 and 2006 in English and held by 241 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is devoted to schizotypal personality. It provides a comprehensive overview of our knowledge from some of the world's leading researchers in the field, and includes reviews of genetics, neurodevelopment, assessment, psychophysiology, neuropsychology and brain imaging. Central themes are the exploration of categorical and dimensional approaches to the understanding of schizotypal disorder and its relationship to schizophrenia. Valuable introductory and concluding chapters set in context the sometimes divergent opinions and findings presented by the book's contributors and there are reviews of methodological issues and assessment schedules for the benefit of researchers in the field. In setting out to answer, from phenomenological, psychological and neurobiological perspectives, the fundamental question 'What is schizotypal disorder?' and to develop coherent etiological models, this book will serve as an authoritative resource for clinicians and researchers interested in this major personality disorder

The associative basis of the creative process by Sarnoff A Mednick( Book )

4 editions published in 1965 in English and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Research was conducted to focus on an examination of several aspects of the creative process as well as on the development of a test of creative thinking. The specific objectives were (1) to construct a test which will measure creativity at the high school level, (2) to identify the variables that are effective in influencing the creative process, and (3) to refine a theory of creative thinking. A number of studies using different methods were pursued--(1) a development of the remote associates test (rat), a test of creative thinking, which is derived from an associative theory of creativity, and (2) studies of the creative process in terms of associative theory. These studies, related to each other in that all test hypotheses stemmed from an associative theory, were (1) continual association as a function of level of creativity and type of verbal stimulus, (2) an associative interpretation of verbal relatedness, (3) incubation of creative performance and specific associative priming, (4) creativity and the need for novelty, (5) some effects of conflict in creative thinking, (6) creative potential and childhood antecedents, (7) factors affecting the manifestation of creative associative relatedness in verbal transfer. Each of the nine separate studies had their own independent experimental design which included objectives, procedure results, and conclusions. (Hb)
