Abstract and Keywords

This article attempts to answer questions concerning the relation of neuroscience to behaviorism. It explains the meaning of behaviorism and investigates whether all scientific experiments in learning and memory are designed according to repetition, classical conditioning, and stimulus-response-reward (SRR) paradigms. It also examines whether reward leaning and classical conditioning can be generalized in a way that allows explanations of all forms of memory encoding and learning that animals and humans accomplish.

Keywords: neuroscience, behaviorism, leaning, memory, repetition, classical conditioning, SRR paradigm, reward learning, memory encoding
