Donald O. Hebb on Terminology - Dictionary of Arguments

Corr I 349
Terminology/Hebb: Def cns/Hebb: Hebb 1955)(1) The cns (conceptual nervous system) component of RST (reinforcement sensitivity theory) provides the behavioural scaffolding, formalized within some theoretical framework (e.g., learning theory; see Gray 1975(2); or, ethoexperimental analysis; see Gray and McNaughton 2000)(3);
Def CNS/Hebb: the CNS (Central Nervous System) component specifies the brain systems involved, couched in terms of the latest knowledge of the neuroendocrine system (see McNaughton and Corr 2008)(4). As noted by Gray (1972a)(5), these two levels of explanation must be compatible.
