The third dimension of the structure is the time scale of the effect of interest. If we  use behavioral adaptation as the example, we would point out that not only does life  exist – and not only do life forms behave – but they behave in different ways as the  result of experience with the environment. This is what behavioral adaptation  means.  Sensation, learning, developmental, and animal behavior are four  seemingly distinct, nearly autonomous areas of inquiry involved in the  analysis of behavior change. In point of fact, there is a fundamental  continuity underlying these approaches. The appropriate perspective  points out that these areas of inquiry are inextricably interdependent and  vary along a closed continuum. This emphasis along with its implications  provide a comfortable integration of available data, the production of  fruitful research, and an understanding of behavior change.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
