 Like all behaviorists,​ Estes viewed learning and behavior simply as **mechanical**. Still, later he **included memory** as a factor in his theory, and suggested stimuli don't directly cause a response. They evoke memories of previous experiences,​ enabling one to analyze possible outcomes and decide on the response that will lead to the most desirable outcome (//scanning model of decision making//​).(([[http://​www.lifecircles-inc.com/​Learningtheories/​behaviorism/​Estes.html|Cooper,​ S.

-Just like Gurthie, Estes rejected reinforcement and its relations to learning. **Reinforcement** has to do with the **performance** as it influences not learning, but rather how already learned material will manifest itself. Forgetting in Estes' theory occurred through unavailable stimulus elements due to external or internal variations. Spontaneous recovery can occur due to a relevant stimuli reoccurring.(([[http://​www.lifecircles-inc.com/​Learningtheories/​behaviorism/​Estes.html|Cooper,​ S. William K.
