Involves four main processes  Four Main Processes o Attention o Retention o Motor Reproduction o Reinforcement/motivation  Albert Bandura’s “Bobo Doll” Experiment o Do kids watching someone be violent with the doll tend to be violent to the doll as well?  Yes, kids watching the video of the women beating up the doll later went on to be violent with the doll when given the chance o Does watching aggressive behavior on TV…  cause a person to act less aggressively?  cause a person to act more aggressively?  Purposive Learning o Question:  If much of our behavior is controlled by rewards and punishments, do we really have “free will?” o Answer:  Depends on who you talk to…  E.C. Tolman o In opposition to Skinner’s behaviorism, Tolman emphasized the idea that much of behavior is goal directed and purposeful.  Evidence for Expectancies o Tinklepaugh’s banana/lettuce switcharoo experiment  Remember the Monkey who was rewarded with a banana if he guessed which cup it was under correctly….also remember what the reaction of the monkey was when the banana was switched with lettuce  It was very angry  Latent Learning o Learning occurs even when responses are not being reinforced— however, it might not be immediately reflected in behavior. Also called implicit learning.  What Can we Conclude? o Learning occurs all the time, even without rewards and punishments. o As we make associations we form mental expectations about future events. o Based on our past experiences, we engage in behavior that allows us to achieve goals.
