Card Set Information
The process by wbecome response becomes more likely to occur or less so, depending on its consequences.
Consequences of behavior
Reinforcement strengthensthe response or makes it more likely to occur.
Punishment weakens the response or makes it less likely to occur.
A reinforcement procedure in which a response is followed by the removal, delay, or decrease in intensity of an unpleasant stimulus. As a result, the response becomes stronger or more likely
A reinforcement procedure in which aresponse is followed by the presentation of, or increase of a reinforcing stimulus. As a result the responsebecomes stronger or more likely
The weakening and eventual disappearance of a learned response in operant conditioning it occurs when a response is no longer followed by a reinforcer.
In operant conditioning the tendency for a response that has been reinforced in the presence of one stimulus to occur in the presence of another.
In operant conditioning the tendency of a response tooccur in the presence of one stimulus but not in the presence of another similarstimuli
A stimulus that signals when a particular response is likely to be followed by a certain type of consequence.
A reinforcement schedule in which a particular response is likely to be followed by a certain type of consequence
Intermittent schedule of reinforcement
A reinforcement schedule in which a particular response is sometimes nut not always reinforced
An operant conditioning procedure in which successive approximations of a desired response are reeinforced
In shaping, behaviorsthat are ordered in terms of increasing similarity to the desired response
Tendency of anorganism to reevert back toinstinctively behavior
A relatively permanent change in behavior due to exprience
Approachpsychology that emphasizas the study of observable behavior and the role of environment
Basic kind of learning that involves associations among environmental stimuli and behavior
Stimulus that already elicits a certain response
Response elicited by a us
Initially neutral stimulus that comes to elicit a cr after being associated with an us
Response elicited by a cs, occurs after cs isassociated with us
The process by which a obviously neutral stimulus becomes associatEd with a stimulus that already elicits a response and in turn acquires the capacity to elicit a similar respon
Process of pairing a cs with a stimulus that elicits a response that is incompatable with an unwanted conditional response
