USES IN DETECTING LEARNING
Pages 29

In the previous chapter, I described Pavlovian conditioning as the learning of relations among events in the environment. I suggested also that the occurrence of such associative learning could be detected because it results in changes in the organism’s behavior. According to this viewpoint, whenever we expose an animal to a particular relation and subsequently observe a change in its behavior attributable to that exposure, we have a potential index of learning.
