Have you ever eaten a pie, and shortly after vomiting the pie? The next time you saw the same pie, what was your first reaction? You were more likely to avoid it because you learned how to "hate" the pie.

This is the process of learning. Learning was establish way before advance researches were made. In fact, if human beings were not able to learn they would not survive for decades.

Learning is not just a process taken at school; it is an “every day” process.
It helps us adapt the changes in our environment. We can either enforce our behavior for survival and reward or eliminate a behavior from an unsuccessful experiment.

1.      Classical conditioning

2.      Operant conditioning

3.      Cognitive and observational conditioning
