CONTIGUITY LEARNING THEORY

a theory by Edwin R. Guthrie postulating that is a trend of incitement and a reaction happen concurrently in space and time, that learning happens by the development of correlations between them, so that the very same incitement trend will invoke the same reaction on following events yet to occur.

CONTIGUITY LEARNING THEORY: "Continuity learning theory poses that correlations between the two will account for the same reactions occurring following the same solicitors in the future."
