Theories of learning by Ernest R Hilgard( Book )

58 editions published between 1948 and 2009 in English and Italian and held by 1,980 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Learning is a central topic within American psychology, and its problems have provided the occasion for hundreds of experimental studies. The science of learning remains in a state of flux, in part because we have not yet reached agreement upon the most appropriate concepts to use in stating our problems and in interpreting our data. This book represents an attempt to provide in one place an introduction to the major theories of learning which are current among psychologists doing research in this important field of study. The aim is to see theory in relation to experiment. Each of the several theories is therefore illustrated by a selected topic within the field of experimentation. The topic chosen is in each case one actively studied by adherents to the theory. The theory can be judged both by its provocativeness in suggesting experiments, and by its success in dealing systematically with the data which emerge from such experiments.

Asserting yourself : a practical guide for positive change by Sharon Anthony Bower( Book )

36 editions published between 1976 and 2009 in English and held by 1,145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Utilizing a number of techniques from behavior-change psychology, speech, communications, and acting, the authors Sharon and Gordon Bower outline an effective assertiveness program to help people improve their self-esteem, articulate their opinions, and develop meaningful relationships. Exercises and examples throughout-including the celebrated "DESC scripts" (describe, express, specify, consequences) - allow readers to practice the program, adapt it to their own lives, and evaluate their progress. For both personal and professional use, Asserting Yourself is the classic guide to building confidence and taking a stand
Human associative memory by John R Anderson( Book )

56 editions published between 1973 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 1,038 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This brief edition contains two major parts. The first is the historical analysis of associationism and its countertraditions, which still provides the framework used to relate current research to an important intellectual tradition. The second part of the book reproduces the major components of the HAM theory. In our view, the major contribution of that theory was the propositional network analyses of memory and the placement of those representational assumptions into an information-processing framework. This book is smaller than the previous book on HAM thanks to a re-evaluation of certain sections which have been deleted--some due to out of date information, some because the analyses presented have been replaced by better ones. This book makes the more important points of the original HAM book available at a more economical price. - from the preface

Memory and mind : a festschrift for Gordon H. Bower by Mark A Gluck( )

11 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in English and held by 550 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A comprehensive overview of the current state of research on memory and mind, this book captures the career and influence of Gordon H. Bower (as told by 22 of his students and colleagues), showing how Bower's research and mentoring of students has broadly and deeply affected modern research. In addition to many personal reminisces about Bower's research and graduate training in the 1950s through 1990s, this book illustrates how Bower's early research and ideas lay the groundwork for much of modern psychological studies of memory, expertise, psychological assessment, and mental imagery

Other chapters describe the results of a number of experiments designed to test specific models that can

Cognitive perspectives on emotion and motivation by Vernon Hamilton( Book )

19 editions published between 1987 and 1988 in English and held by 251 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents the contributions of the members of an Advanced Research Workshop on Cogni ti ve Science Perspectives on Emotion, Motivation and Cognition. The Workshop, funded mainly by the NATO Scientific Affairs Division, together with a contribution from the (British) Economic and Social Research Council, was conducted at II Ciocco, Tuscany, Italy, 21-27 June 1987. The venue for our discussions was ideal: a quiet holiday hotel, 500m high in the Apennine mountain range, approached by a mile of perilously steep, winding narrow road. The isolation was conducive to concentrated discussions on the topics of the Workshop. The reason for the Workshop was a felt need for researchers from disparate but related approaches to cognition, emotion, and motivation to communicate their perspectives and arguments to one another. To take just one example, the framework of information processing and the metaphor of mind as a computer has wrought a major revolution in psychological theories of cogni tion. That framework has radically altered the way psychologists conceptualize perception, memory, language, thought, and action. Those advances have formed the intellectual substrate for the "cognitive science" perspective on mental life
