Sehr interessantes Paper vom 18.10.2018 zum kostenlosen Download. Aber Achtung: bei der Verlinkung handelt es sich um einen Vorabdruck, der noch keinen Peer-Review durchlaufen hat!

Da ich die, häufig in Diskussionen anzutreffende, (strikte) Unterscheidung zwischen assoziativem und sozialem Lernen bisher immer als unbefriedigend und unverständlich empfand, fiel mir die folgende Aussage vor allem ins Auge (Ja, ja ich weiß: der Confirmation Bias 😝):

Our results illustrate that a diversity of social learning phenomena can arise from associative mechanisms, as formalized in our genetically guided associative learning model (Enquist et al., 2016). Associative learning may thus provide a unified account of social learning phenomena that are often treated as separate. Our results also indicate that social learning may rely on the same mechanisms as individual learning, with adaptive specializations for social learning implemented as genetic pre- dispositions in perceptual, motivational, and reward systems, rather than as distinct learning mechanisms
