Psychology 152 – Class Notes – 11/30/09 Second order conditioning – occurs in respondent conditioning Respondent conditioning - Pavlovian, classical conditioning Second-order conditioning – When you pair a CS1 and another neutral stimulus. The neutral stimulus then becomes CS2. The power that the second-order conditioned stimulus has will be lower than the power of CS1 to exert an effect. We don’t actually have to solve the equation or use the equation, but we just have to know the equation. Vmax = strength of the conditioned stimulus – maximum assoicative strenght of the CS. With each leve Asymptode – the curve starts to flatten – the most power that you will get with this stimulus. The maximum associative strength (designated by Vmax) – The line represents the neutral stimulus that we are trying to condition as a conditioned stimulus If the asymptode and the line overlap, that means that the conditioned stimulus has the EXACT same strength as the unconditioned stimulus.
