  1. 1. Human Learning Topic 2: The Most Basic Learning Part 2CEDP 324 - Ryan Sain, Ph.D. 1 3/29/2012
  2. 2. MAPs Modal Action Patterns  Similar to reflexes but more complex  Occur in a single species or related species  Occur in nearly all members of the species to similar stimuli  They change depending on the state of the organism  Male stickleback fishCEDP 324 - Ryan Sain, Ph.D. 2 3/29/2012
  3. 3. MAPs Feeding behavior of the herring-gull  Multiple MAPS working together  Chick pecking – parent regurgitating  What invokes the pecking?CEDP 324 - Ryan Sain, Ph.D. 3 3/29/2012
  4. 4. MAPs For the herring gulls  Long, thin, moving object, pointed downward with a contrasting red patch at the tip.  The other stimuli were irrelevant Sign stimulus Supernormal stimulusCEDP 324 - Ryan Sain, Ph.D. 4 3/29/2012
