How the brain learns has been one of the key elements of behavioral science for over a century. This handbook provides the first collection of essays on the cognitive neuroscience of learning that encompasses the associative and neuroscientific approaches to learning. Detailing how these approaches challenge and inform each other, the handbook covers a broad range of topics while maintaining an overarching integrative approach. From mediated associations to prediction error and the neurobiology of psychopathology, each chapter features the latest in neuroscientific research and psychological theory.

With contributions from scholars at the forefront of the fields of associative learning, cognitive neuroscience, and behavioral psychology,The Wiley Handbook on the Cognitive Neuroscience of Learning will be an essential tool for students, scholars and researchers interested in better understanding how we learn.
