Learning and Memory
Learning and Memory specializes in research and theory in instrumental/operant conditioning, Pavlovian conditioning, motivation, and animal perception and cognition. The faculty primarily work with non- human animals, and their specific interests currently include topics such as categorization and acquired equivalence, numerosity discriminations, reward memories and outcome expectancies, serial learning, reward schedule effects, modulatory and other conditioning processes in feeding, and the neural substrates of learning and memory. Students interested in graduate training with any of the learning and memory faculty as an adviser should contact that faculty member for information about admission to an individualized graduate program.
