Competition and facilitation in compound conditioning

Gonzalo P. Urcelay
2017 Journal of Experimental Psychology: Animal Learning and Cognition  
Competition and facilitation in compound conditioning With a few exceptions, most associative theories of learning have been developed to explain deficits in learning and performance in the face of cue-outcome  ...  The more salient stimulus A is thought to attenuate learning about (or at least expression of) the X-O relationship. Blocking is another example of cue competition phenomena (Kamin, 1968) .  ...  I should note that Neely and Wagner (1974) reported an experiment in Competition and Facilitation 11 which blocking was observed with the use of 25% partial reinforcement during Phase 2, a result at  ...

Neural Correlates of Reinforcement Learning and Social Preferences in Competitive Bidding

W. van den Bos, A. Talwar, S. M. McClure
2013 Journal of Neuroscience  
Based on these results, we argue for a novel mechanistic account for the integration of reinforcement history and social preferences in competitive decision-making.  ...  We first demonstrate that bidding is well characterized by reinforcement learning with biased reward representations dependent on social preferences.  ...  These areas have been associated with reward prediction errors in reinforcement learning numerously (for review, see Cohen, 2008) .  ...
