Neural Mechanisms of Sensitization 3. Classical Conditioning 4. Spatial Learning 5. Neural Correlates of Spatial Learning Types of Learning -Non-associative learning *habituation: decreased response probability with repeated stimulation *sensitization: increased in response with pairing of 2 stimuli -Associative learning (Stimulus associated with reward) *imprinting *Pavlovian condition (food aversion learning) *insight learning (aha! No trial and error) *latent learning (often spatial learning) -Sensitization is mediated by serotonin release from presynaptic terminals -serotonin activates GPCR through 2 nd  messenger cAMP -K+ channels close -increasing effect of Ca++ influx -leading to more transmitter release
