Association Theory

Association Theory

This theory stems from behaviorism and states that concepts are learned by simple, reinforced connections between a stimulus and the desired response. When an organism makes connections between a stimulus (e.g., a bell ringing) and a response (e.g., pressing a lever which may ultimately lead to a reward), it is making an association.
