Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0387969632, Hardcover)

This volume is the first account devoted entirely to spontaneous alternation behavior (SAB), a behavior pattern exhibited by a variety of species. Because of its reliability and simplicity, spontaneous alternation behavior has been of special interest to biobehavioral researchers as an indicator of basic psychological processes, such as memory, perception, and motivation, as well as the neural mechanisms underlying these phenomena. Topics include the phylogeny and ontogeny of SAB, its relation to learning, drive, and emotionality, and brain systems and neurochemical factors in SAB. Of special interest is a contribution offering practical advice on conducting this type of research. Despite its apparent simplicity, SAB remains a fascinating and sometimes elusive phenomenon.
