  1. how is negative reinforcement equivalent to escape and avoidance?
    the response is equivalent in both instances
  2. Escape behavior
    performance of the behavior terminates the aversive stimulus (the aversive stimulus is removed)

    we escape from the rain when we run indoors after it has started
  3. Avoidance behavior
    performance of the behavior prevents the aversive stimulus from occurring (aversive stimulus avoided)

    we avoid the rain when we head indoors before it has started
  4. shuttle avoidance procedure (definition)
    an animal has to shuttle back and forth in a box to avoid an aversive stimulus
  5. shuttle avoidance procedure (procedure)
    escape: shock (Sd) is followed by the behavior of crossing the barrier (R) which leads to removal of the shock (Sr)

    Avoidance: the light (Sd) is followed by the behavior of crossing the barrier (R) which leads to the avoidance of shock (Sr)
  6. One-process theory (operant conditioning)
    the act of avoidance is negatively reinforced simply by the lower rate of aversive stimulation it is associated with (the decrease in aversive stimulation is the reinforcer)
  7. Two-process theory of avoidance(classical and operant conditioning)
    two processes are involved in learning and avoidance response
  8. obsessions
    aversive thoughts that generate anxiety
  9. compulsions
    behaviors that are negatively reinforced because they relieve the anxiety
  10. ERP treatments
    prevents compulsive behaviors and allow anxiety to extinguish
