"'It's a poor sort of memory that only works backwards', the Queen
Isn't it everybody's secret wish to just slip through the mirror and enter a world where memory could work both backwards and forwards so we could get a glimpse of the future? In our world we have only been able to agree on one sort of memory which stores events from our past. Even more limiting is a scientific concept in which learning (the process that produces memory) is defined by the alteration of the behavior of an organism that has been subjected to a particular experience. Scientists have gone far in constructing a nomenclature of different types of learning (and thus different memories), two of which have raised particular interest in the scientific community since they have been discovered and defined by Ivan P. Pavlov and Burrhus F. Skinner, respectively: classical and operant conditioning. These simple forms of associative learning are my prime interest and you will find a wealth of information about them on these pages. I hope you can see what a fascinating field this research is and maybe some of the content of my site will be enlightening to you.
