Project 12: Does the strength of expectancy violation influence whether expectations are maintained or changed?

Dr. Metin Üngör (Associative Learning)

PhD Student: Sahar Aghajari

Expectations are based on associations, internal representations of relations between outside events. Associations allow for predictions, and associative learning theories deal with how to use prediction errors to modify associative strengths in order to minimize errors in future predictions. Our aim in this project is to investigate whether the strength of prediction error influences whether acquired expectations are maintained or modified.
