While studying Psychology, students will encounter many different explanations and theories answering the question: "What is learning?" Hebbian Learning is a Biological Neuroscience explanation of what learning is and what occurs during learning.

"Cells (neurons) that fire together, wire together." (Carla Shatz, Stanford University)
 
The basic idea of Hebbian Learning is that there is an increase in connectivity between neurons when one of them repeatedly stimulates another. This increase in synaptic strength allows the two neurons to communicate more efficiently.
