Their statements do closely approximate formal state documents of what the centers are meant to achieve, namely increased confidence, literacy, and associability. Especially in terms of self-confidence, many of the girls noted a much better sense of self and accomplishment, as demonstrated in this statement by Berivan, "By coming here, a person feels proud of herself.
The importance of state intervention for explaining business associability is underscored by a comparison of the Dutch data with that from the U.S.
Clearly more evidence is required to determine whether higher primates demonstrate differential behavior and associability to serpent-like stimuli, but as things stand, a special status for such stimuli has not been established and movement of any kind seems to be a particularly salient attribute.
According to this theory, associability of contextual cues will be reduced during contexts pre-exposure, as they are not better predictors of the US than other stimuli present in the situation, so that it will be unlikely that they enter into association with the US at the time of conditioning (see also Pearce & Hall, 1980).
The RSAS is composed of 40 items in a True/False format which measure: schizoid indifference, associability, lack of social enjoyment and indifference towards others.

As Guyer has pointed out, if Kant means PS to guarantee the discoverability of empirical concepts, it threatens to moot the doctrine of the affinity among appearances found in the first edition Deduction.(37) Transcendental affinity is the associability of different elements in the manifold of intuition had in virtue of the fact that all manifolds conform to the a priori laws for ordering representations issuing from the subject.(38) That is, there is symmetry between the association and associability of representations just because experience must have those objective factors in order to be possible at all.
Some learning theorists have stated that CS-alone extinction results in a decrease in attention or associability (Pearce & Hall, 1980).
Increased training should affect only to [alpha], the parameter that determines the associability of the context, decreasing it to zero.
Further experiments, using modifications of this general design (e.g., Hall & Pearce, 1979, 1982) confirmed the generality of the finding and led us to adopt the general principle that training in which a cue was reliably followed by a given consequence would cause that cue to lose associability. The phenomenon of latent inhibition (the retardation of conditioning produced by prior nonreinforced exposure to the CS) was already well known.
