¿En qué consiste el aprendizaje por asociación?

La noción de asociación de ideas fue introducida en psicología, por Aristóteles, quien señaló que cuando tratamos de buscar una impresión conservada en la memoria, se facilita esta búsqueda si conseguimos acordarnos de otras que tengan relaciones de similitud, oposición o proximidad temporal y espacial, con las que buscamos. Estas tres condiciones: semejanza, contraste y proximidad, fueron consideradas como las leyes (o principios) primarias de la asociación de ideas, porque eran las que determinaban unión entre las ideas.

De forma simple, el aprendizaje por asociación no es más que el desarrollo de nuestro conocimiento a través de la asociación de una o más cosas o circunstancias, incluso sonidos. Este método lo aplicamos tanto consciente como inconscientemente y es el responsable de que sepamos que el sol da calor, que el ladrido es de los perros  y que una bocina está asociada a un vehículo.
