Summary
"Animal Learning and Cognition: An Introduction provides an up-to-date review of the principal findings from more than a century of research into animal intelligence. This new edition has been expanded to take account of the many exciting developments that have occurred over the last ten years in both animal learning and comparative cognition." "Topics covered include Pavlovian and instrumental conditioning, discrimination learning, extinction, categorization, memory, navigation, social learning, language and communication, imitation, and knowledge representation. Issues raised throughout the book are reviewed in a concluding chapter that examines how intelligence is distributed throughout the animal kingdom." "The broad spectrum of topics covered in this book ensures that it will be invaluable to students of psychology, biology, zoology, and neuroscience. Since very little background knowledge is required, this book will be of equal value to anyone simply interested in either animal intelligence, or the animal origins of human intelligence."--BOOK JACKET
