This part presents four chapters on the concept of learning. The first chapter argues that learning is a pre-theoretical, possibly even a pre-scientific, concept. The second discusses three concepts that are central to more than one theory: associative strength, associability, and prediction error. The third focuses on challenges in linking the primary, behavioral indication of learning with cellular and systems neurobiological approaches to learning mechanisms. The fourth chapter presents a synthesis of the chatpers in this part.
