These experiences are characterized by an individual's acts producing certain consequences and are unique from associative learning experiences in that they involve personal volition on the part of the learner (Krumboltz, 1979).
Specifically, and consistent with the match-up hypothesis, associative learning theory, and the social categorization framework, fit perceptions were influenced by student characteristics and course content such that female students perceived a better fit between the female instructor and the women's studies lecture than between the male instructor and the women's studies lecture.
However, the results are still consistent with an associative learning hypothesis.
Individual differences also have been reported, but De Lillo and Visalberghi concluded that overall, capuchins most clearly showed signs of associative learning.
The research questions of the present study focus on whether bilinguals are more flexible learners than monolinguals providing superior learning abilities with respect to a new language or whether a word-object associative learning context provides a more laborious learning setting and thus leading to delayed and differential processing mechanisms, both on a temporal level as well as with respect to recruitment of differential brain areas.
The researcher reveals that with increasing foraging duration, their capacity for associative learning was found to decrease.
Associative learning is perhaps the field in which the most controversial debate about the nature of the representation of compounds has taken place (see Pearce, 2002; Wagner, 2003, for reviews).
By using a new imaging technique called Arc catFISH, the researchers have visualized individual neurons in the amygdalas of rat brains, which gets activated after giving the animals an associative learning task.
Some of these possibilities assume nothing more than associative learning among events and behavior or outcomes (Burns, Dunkman, & Detloff, 1999).
Symmetry, also referred to as bidirectionality or backward associative learning, involves the principle that associations between two events function in both directions.

Measurements of brain activity were performed using a feedback-based visual-motor associative learning functional MRI task.
