Systematic, relatively permanent change in behavior that occurs through experiences
Theory of learning that focuses solely on observable behaviors, discounting the importance of such mental activity as thinking, wishing, and hoping
Occurs when we make a connection, or an association. between two events.
The process of learning these associations
In____________, organisms learn the association between two stimuli.
As a result of this association, organisms learn to ____________ events.
In operant conditioning, organisms learn the association between a ___________ and a _____, such as a reward.
behavior / consequence
A stimulus that produces a response without prior learning
An unlearned reaction that is automatically elicited by the UCS.
unconditioned response (UCR)
In classical conditioning, a conditioned stimulus (CS) is a previously neutral stimulus that eventually elicits a_________ after being paired with the________________.
conditioned response / unconditioned stimulus
The conditioned response (CR) is the learned response to the conditioned stimulus that occurs after
___ is the initial learning of the connection between the UCS and CS when these two stimuli are paired
Means that the CS and UCS are presented very close together in time
Means the CS must procede UCS closely in time, must also be a reliable indicator that UCS is on its way
In classical conditioning, the tendency of a new stimulus that is similar to the original CS to elicit a response similar to CR
In classical conditioning, learning to respond to certain stimuli and not others
In classical conditioning, weakening of the CR when UCS is absent
Process in classical conditioning by which CR can recur after a time delay, without further conditioning
Recovery of the conditioned response when the organism is placed in a novel context
Classical conditioning procedure for changing the relationship between a CS & its CR
Method of therapy that treats anxiety by teaching the client to associate deep relaxation with increasingly intense anxiety-producing situations
Form of treatment that consists of repeated pairings of a stimulus with a very unpleasant stimuli
