  1. What is a form of learning in which a previously nuetral stimulus is paired with an unconditioned stimulus to elicit a conditioned response that is identical to or very similar to the unconditoned response?
    Classical Conditioning
  2. What is the Temporary increase in the strength of a conditioned response, which is likely to occur during extinction after the passage of time?
    Spontaneous Recovery
  3. What is inferred mental awarness of the structure of a physical space or related elements?
    Cognitive Map
  4. What is the process of unlearning a learned response because of the removal of the original source of learning?
    Extinction
  5. What is a Temporary increase in the strength of an extinguished response caused by an unrelated stimulus events?
    Disinhibition
  6. What is reinforcement schedule in which the reinforcer is given following the first response occuring after a predetermined period of time?
    Fixed interval schedule
  7. What is a reinforcement schedule in which the reinforcer is given only new strategies to deal with new problems?
    Fixed Ratio Schedule
  8. What is any relatively permanent change in behavior brought about through experience?
    Learning
  9. What is the improvement in the rate of learning to solve new problems through practice solving similar problems?
    Learning Set
  10. What is learning based on observation of the behavior of another?
    Modeling
  11. what is any relatively permanent change in behavior brought about through experience?
    Learning
  12. What is the reinforcement schedule in which the reinforcer is given only new strategies to deal with new problems?
    Fixed Ratio Schedule
  13. What is the reinforcment schedule in which the reinforcer is given following the first response occuring after a predetermined period of time?
    Fixed interval Schedule
  14. What is the strategy of positvely reinforcing behaviors that are successively more similar to desired behaviors?
    Shaping
  15. What is the prevention of avoidance responses to ensure that the individual sees that negative consequence will not occur to speed up the extinction of avoidance response?
    Response Prevention
  16. What is learning in which the consequences of behavior lead to changes in the probability of its occurence?
    Operant conditioning
  17. What is a negative consequence of a behavior which leads to a decrease in the frequency of the behavior that produces it?
    Punishment
  18. What is the reinforcement schedule in which the reinforcer is given after a varying number of responses have been made?
    Variable Ratio schedule
