Learning theory, feed-forward mechanisms, and the adaptiveness of conditioned responding

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 27 (5):698-698 (2004)

The specific mechanisms whereby Pavlovian conditioning leads to adaptive behavior need to be elaborated. There is no evidence that it is via reduction in the “destabilizing effect that time lags have on feedback control” (Domjan et al. 2000, sect. 3.3). The adaptive value of Pavlovian conditioning goes well beyond the regulation of social behavior.
