Experimental Psychology Laboratory: Prof. Ronald Betancourt Mainhard
“The Laboratory proposes its mission in a formal way, expressing itself in three fundamental points, namely:
Develop and encourage experimental practice as a fundamental part of the psychologist’s training, responding to the need for students of the Basic Learning Processes course and other optional courses in the area, to acquire theoretical and experimental information about associative and non-associative learning .
Develop the ability to analyze, relate and understand the different paradigms and methodologies of the study of learning, as well as give students the opportunity to carry out research framed in the topics analyzed in the chair.
Expand the body of scientific knowledge about Pavlovian and instrumental conditioning, developing empirical research that contributes, from a translational perspective, to the understanding of human behavior phenomena and the development of effective interventions.”
