Psy 630 Week 4 DQ 1
- DQ 1: The "Skinner box" study we read about this week is a famous experiment that really highlights how positive reinforcement can lead to new behaviors. Skinner placed hungry rats into a box where there was no evident food. However, the rats quickly learned that if they pressed on a lever, they would receive food. Following, the rats continued to press on the lever to satisfy their hunger, demonstrating new learning.
I'd like to ask the class, what are the other ways we learn?
