This volume brings together contributions on Pavlovian conditioning in humans, from both the USA and Europe, and illustrates the important theoretical developments that have recently occurred in our understanding of conditioning processes in humans. Apart from describing the current state of our knowledge of Pavlovian conditioning in humans, this volume has three general aims: (i) to attempt to integrate current models of human Pavlovian conditioning with the expanding literature on Pavlovian conditioning in non-human animals; (ii) to elucidate the relevance of contemporary human conditioning theory for psychopathology and psychotherapy techniques, and (iii) as the title of the volume implies, to emphasise that conditioning is a relatively complex cognitive information processing task quite unlike the simplistic mechanistic learning by which it has traditionally been portrayed. Because of its thorough coverage of comtemporary human conditioning theory and integration of models of human and animal conditioning, the book will be of great interest to lecturers, students and practitioners in cognitive, clinical and abnormal psychology.
