    Pavlovian Feed-Forward Mechanisms in the Control of Social Behavior.Michael Domjan, Brian Cusato & Ronald Villarreal - 2000 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 23 (2):235-249.
    The conceptual and investigative tools for the analysis of social behavior can be expanded by integrating biological theory, control systems theory, and Pavlovian conditioning. Biological theory has focused on the costs and benefits of social behavior from ecological and evolutionary perspectives. In contrast, control systems theory is concerned with how machines achieve a particular goal or purpose. The accurate operation of a system often requires feed-forward mechanisms that adjust system performance in anticipation of future inputs. Pavlovian conditioning is ideally suited (...)

    Learning in Intimate Connections: Conditioned Fertility and its Role in Sexual Competition.Michael Domjan, Michael J. Mahometa & R. Nicolle Matthews - 2012 - Socioaffective Neuroscience and Psychology 2.
    Background: Studies of sexual conditioning typically focus on the development of conditioned responses to a stimulus that precedes and has become associated with a sexual unconditioned stimulus (US). Such a sexually conditioned stimulus (CS) provides the opportunity for feed-forward regulation of sexual behavior, which improves the efficiency and effectiveness of the sexual activity. Objective and Design: The present experiments were conducted to provide evidence of such feed-forward regulation of sexual behavior in laboratory studies with domesticated quail by measuring how many (...)

    Extensions, Elaborations, and Explanations of the Role of Evolution and Learning in the Control of Social Behavior.Michael Domjan, Brian Cusato & Ronald Villarreal - 2000 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 23 (2):269-276.
    Reactions to the target article included requests for extensions and elaborations of the schema we proposed and discussions of apparent shortcomings of our approach. In general, we welcome suggestions for extension of the schema to additional kinds of social behavior and to forms of learning other than Pavlovian conditioning. Many of the requested elaborations of the schema are consistent with our approach, but some may limit its generality. Many of the apparent shortcomings that commentators discussed do not seem problematic. Our (...)

    Tactics in Theory of Mind Research.Jesse E. Purdy & Michael Domjan - 1998 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 21 (1):129-130.
    Progress in the “theory of mind” debate would be better served at this point by abandoning the search for a perfect “critical experiment” and developing an incremental research program based on a systematic theory of “theory of mind.” Studies using the goggle procedure advocated by Heyes should dissociate the ability to see from possible behavioral artifacts of “blind” trainers.

    Plus Maze Experiments and the Boundary Conditions of the Dynamic Field Model.Melissa Burns & Michael Domjan - 2001 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 24 (1):35-36.
    In the dynamic field model, parametric variations of the same general processes predict how infants reach for a goal. Animal learning investigators argue that locating a goal is the product of qualitatively different mechanisms (response learning and place learning) Response versus place learning experiments suggest limitations to the dynamic field model hut where those limitations begin or end is unclear.
