The process of association, that is, forming a connection through individual learning between two or more experiences, was discovered and investigated by Wilhelm Wundt (1922). Since then this kind of process has become the focus of interest of almost all research concerned with learning. The conditioned response, which occupied I. P. Pavlov as well as some important American investigators at the turn of the century, is nothing other than the objective, physiological aspect of what Wundt called association. With some justification, the conditioning of responses was and still is regarded as the essense of all learning.
