Toward a Statistical Theory of Learning.
Estes, William K.
Psychological Review, v101 n2 p282-89 Apr 1994
This essay introduces a series of studies developing a statistical theory of elementary learning processes. An attempt is made to derive relations among commonly used measures of behavior and quantitative expressions describing simple learning phenomena. Laws of the theory state probability relations between momentary changes in behavioral and environmental variables. (SLD)
