6. Learning from others Up to now, we have been considering the way in which learning is acquired in individual animals. However, many species, including humans, are quite sociable and live in groups of one size or another. It is therefore important to incorporate into our understanding of learning whether and how information might be acquired from another organism. In other words, how social learning might take place, and what sorts of factors might influence it.

5. Learning and remembering, reading and number cognitive demands made by different classroom tasks. Psychological research shows rapid development in all of these ‘meta-cognitive’ skills between the ages of 3 and 7 years. Research on children’s developing knowledge of their own cognition ( meta -cognition) is covered here and in . At the same time, young children are dealing with the non-trivial requirements of learning to read and write, and learning mathematics. As both reading and mathematics are cultural inventions that have been developed over hundreds of years, it is perhaps unsurprising that children take a while to

3. The surprising thing about learning Let us start with a thought experiment. Imagine you have just graduated and are starting your first job. You form a partnership with a businessman (let’s call him William) who, year in, year out, for the past ten years, has made a steady profit of £500,000. After working with William for two years you get a chance to look at the accounts of the company. What you discover is that, like the past ten years, the company has continued to make a steady profit of £500,000. Who do you think is responsible for the

7. Surely there is more to learning than that? At the start of this book, learning was defined as a relatively permanent change in behaviour as a consequence of experience. The subsequent chapters in this book have provided a variety of examples of learned behaviour, some of which is pleasant, some of which is scary; some helpful, and some downright maladaptive. Learning has been described in cases when stimuli are present, as well as when they are absent. Learning has been described in the context of space, the context of time, and in terms of the social environment. At face

9. Dreaming, learning, and memory The idea that dreaming is involved in the reorganization of memory has been around for at least 30 years, but only within the last five has a strong, clear line of evidence been developed. One of the most important scientists working in this area is my colleague Robert Stickgold, and it is his work that forms the backbone of this chapter.
