Chapter 5: Learning Chapter Five Goals 1. To understand the concepts of classical conditioning 2. To understand classical conditioning in everyday life. 3. To understand the concepts of operant conditioning. 4. To understand the concepts of observational learning. Goal: To understand the concepts of classical conditioning. Brian was really looking forword to lunch. His mother had prepared a tuna salad sandwich. Unfortunately, the mayonnaise she used had been left out too long and was tainted. Not long after eatin, Brian felt extremely nauseated and had to rush to the bathroom. Thereafter, the mere mention of a tuna sandwich would send Brian scurrying to the bathroom with a rolling stomach (You must identify the 4 elements of classical conditioning for credit) What behaviors in this scenario are the ucr, ucs, cr, and cs? 1. UCR: (unconditioned response): the response that occurs automatically as result of the UCS; (usually a reflexive or involuntary response that is predictably caused by a UCS). Upset stomach in response to ingesting spoiled food 2. UCS: (unconditioned stimulus): any stimulus that consistently produces a particular, naturally occurring, automatic response/UCR. The spoiled mayonaise induced food poisoning 3. CR: (conditioned response): the learned or acquired response to the CS. Mentioning tuna sandwich will cause Brian to react similarly to having food poisoning 4. CS: (conditioned stimulus): the stimulus that is ‘neutral’ at the start of classical conditioning and does not normally produce the UCR (but eventually becomes associated with the UCS and elicits the CR alone).

    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.
