Abstract

The purpose of the chapter is to relate recent models and findings in computer science and cognitive neuroscience to the expectancy concept first advanced by E. C. Tolman (1932). The author argues that placing these models and findings under the expectancy umbrella connects them to functional behavior in the real world. The author first reviews the models and findings that may be applied to the understanding of expectancy operation. The sections that follow extend the concepts to the domains of affect and personality.
