Unformatted text preview: Be specific. c) Suppose in Phase II, the shock was increased in intensity so that λ = 180, how would this have changed the results in (b) above? 2. Carefully compare Blocking with Overshadowing. Illustrate with specific examples using your own Rescorla-Wagner parameters. According to the Rescorla-Wagner model, what can happen with blocking if, when you add a new CS, you increase the intensity of the UCS? Illustrate. What would happen if you decreased the intensity of the UCS? Is the model correct here? In general, what are the limitations of the Rescorla-Wagner model, i.e., what phenomena are not accounted for? 3. How are the contingencies specified by conditional probabilities of the UCS, given the CS or ~CS related to the Rescorla-Wagner model? More specifically, why would the Rescorla-Wagner model predict conditioning to the CS when: P(UCS | CS) >P(UCS |~CS), and no conditioning to the CS when: P(UCS | CS) = P(UCS | ~CS)?...
