Classical Conditioning Practice Examples - Answers 1. Geraldine had an automobile accident at the corner of 32 nd and Cherry Avenue. Whenever she approaches the intersection now, she begins to feel uncomfortable; her heart begins to beat faster, she gets butterflies in her stomach, and her palms become sweaty (she experiences anxiety/fear). UCS = Automobile Accident; UCR = Anxiety (feel uncomfortable; heart racing, etc) because of accident; CS = Intersection; CR = Anxiety about intersection 2. Calvin was chased and assaulted by an aggressive rooster when he was just barely three years old. As an adult he still won’t go near or even be around a rooster and he even gets a little anxious when he hears the word rooster. He also claims that all birds make him nervous. In addition to identifying the UCS, etc, identify why even the word rooster causes him a little anxiety and why he feels anxiety toward all birds. UCS = Assault; UCR = Fear of Assault; CS = Rooster; CR = Fear of roosters; The word rooster has been associated with the primary CS (rooster) and has become a secondary CS (higher-order conditioning). All birds make Calvin a little nervous because of stimulus generalization. 3. Suzy goes outside to play in her tree house. A swarm of bees has nested near her house, and she gets stung several times when she climbs up to the tree house. This happens 3 times in a week.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
