This chapter considers a probabilistic perspective on a classic problem of human contingency learning: finding the relationships between a category or outcome, for which there are several probabilistic cues. It provides an analysis within the framework of Brunswik's (1955) lens model. It focuses on the dynamics of learning, e.g. the rate of learning and how the learner may respond to changing contingencies — which are, presumably, the norm, in many real-world contexts.

Keywords: human contingency learning; category; Brunswik; lens model; multiple cue probability learning
