"Using this CD-ROM and lab manual, you will get a hands-on experience in setting up and conducting experiments that demonstrate the phenomena of classical and operant conditioning using Sniffy the digital rat. Sniffy includes fifty exercises that cover every major phenomena typically covered in a psychology of learning course. The CD-ROM comes with a lab manual that walks you through the steps necessary to set up classical and operant conditioning experiments that closely resemble the experiments discussed in learning texts. Throughout each, a series of "mind windows" allows you to visualize how Sniffy's experiences in the chamber produce psychological changes." -- Provided by publisher.
