Learning Behavior

Dr. Gomez

Description of Research:

Dr. Gomez studies how individuals learn. Learning is a complex process that involves many factors. In a research laboratory, Dr. Gomez performs controlled experiments and studies behaviors associated with learning. He uses rats as a model system and applies what he learns from his experiments to human behavior.

In the initial video, the rat has been placed in a new environment for the first time. In later clips, the rat has been trained to press a lever for a food reward.
