What is Animal Cognition z It is important to realize that throughout our discussion of learning, up to this point, we have made some implicit assumptions about memory. z First, we have assumed that memory is necessary for learning and that it is an automatic process . z We have also presumed that memory is both "retrospective" and "prospective." We have assumed it is "prospective" in the sense (especially in our discussion of operant conditioning) that the animal or person "anticipates" both the behavior (R) that is necessary in a given situation (S) and the consequences (S* or O, response outcome) that will follow a given behavior (R).

What is Animal Cognition z We have also assumed a "retrospective" memory process in the sense that the effects of repeated training trials accumulate during the acquisition process. How could such an accumulation of "knowledge" take place if not via some retrospective recall of past trial events, including S, R, and S* (O)?

What is Animal Cognition z The importance of the information in this chapter is that it shows how we can investigate our assumptions about how learning takes place, using direct investigation methods.
