  1. The process of strengthening a conditioned response through repeated pairings of an NS with a US is known as ________.
    acquisition
  2. In general, conditioning proceeds more (rapidly/slowly) ______ during the early trials of a conditioning procedure.
    rapidly
  3. The maximum amount of learning that can take place in a given situation is known as the _____ of learning.
    asymptote
  4. In general, a (more/less) _____ intense US produces better conditioning.
    more
  5. In general, a (more/less) _____ intense NS produces better conditioning.
    more
  6. The sudden recovery of an extinguished response following sone delay after extinction is known as s______ r_______.
    spontaneous recovery
  7. Pavlov believed that spontaneous recovery involves the _______ of a conditioned response.
    inhibition
  8. The sudden recovery of a response during an extinction procedure when a novel stimulus is introduced is called ______.
    disinhibition
  9. In ______-______ conditioning, an already established CS is used to condition a new CS.
    higher-order
  10. In general, the CS(2) elicits a (weaker/stronger) response than the CS(1).
    weaker
  11. In higher-order conditioning, conditioning of the CS(1) is often called _____-order conditioning, while conditioning of the CS(2) is called _____-order conditioning.
    • first
    • second
  12. In a higher-order conditioning procedure in which a car is associated with an attractive model, the attractive model is the (CS1/CS2) and the car is the (CS1/CS2).
    • CS2
    • CS1
  13. In _______, the presence of an established CS interferes with conditioning of another stimulus.
    • blocking
    • Similar to overshadowing except it is a NS & CS, as opposed to 2 NS that differ in salience.
  14. A compound stimulus consists of the (simultaneous/successive) presentation of 2 or more separate stimuli.
    simultaneous
  15. In _____, the most salient member of a compound stimulus is more readily conditioned as a CS and thereby interferes with conditioning of the less salient member.
    overshadowing
  16. In ______ ______, a familiar stimulus is more difficult to condition as a CS than is an unfamiliar stimulus.
    latent inhibition
  17. In a(n) _____ procedure, the compound stimulus consists of a neutral stimulus and a CS, whereas in a(n) ______ procedure, the compound stimulus consists of 2 neutral stimuli.
    • blocking
    • overshadowing
  18. Latent inhibition (prevents/promotes) the development of conditioned associations to redundant stimuli.
    prevents
  19. acquisition
    The process of developing and strengthening a conditioned response through repeated pairings of an NS (or CS) with a US.
  20. Blocking
    The phenomenon whereby the presence of an established CS interferes with conditioning of a new CS.
  21. Compound stimulus
    A complex stimulus that consists of the simultaneous presentation of 2 or more individual stimuli.
  22. Disinhibition
    The sudden recovery of a response during an extinction procedure when a novel stimulus is introduced.
  23. Higher-order conditioning
    The process whereby a stimulus that is associated with a CS also beocomes a CS.
  24. Latent inhibition
    The phenomenon whereby a familiar stimulus is more difficult to condition as a CS than is an unfamiliar (novel) stimulus.
  25. Overshadowing
    The phenomenon whereby the most salient member of a compound stimulus is more readily conditioned as a CS and thereby interferes with conditioning of the least salient member.
  26. Sensory preconditioning
    In this phenomenon, when one stimulus is conditioned as a CS, another stimulus it was previously associated with can also become a CS.
