Learning is one of the most intriguing psychological processes. On one hand, it has an important role on the continuous process of adaptation of the body to the environment, and on the other, it is a process that requires very precise conditions to occur, as suggested by the relative infrequency of phenomena as the transfer of skills or knowledge from one context to another.
