Chapter 7 Outline PSYC 201: F18 1) Learning a) Learning- a relatively permanent change in an organism’s behavior due to experience. b) How Do We Learn? i) Associative learning- learning that certain events occur together. c) Classical Conditioning i) Classical conditioning- a type of learning in which an organism comes to associate stimuli. ii) Behaviorism- the view that psychology should be an objective science that studies behavior without reference to mental processes. iii) Pavlov’s Experiments (1) Unconditioned response (UR)- in classical conditioning, the unlearned, naturally occurring response to the unconditioned stimulus (US), such as salvation when food is in the mouth. (2) Unconditioned stimulus (US)-in classical conditioning, a stimulus that unconditionally- naturally and automatically- triggers a response. (3) Conditioned response (CR)- in classical conditioning, the learned response to a previously neutral (but now conditioned) stimulus (CS). (4) Conditioned stimulus (CS)- in classical conditioning, an originally irrelevant stimulus that, after association with an unconditioned stimulus (US), comes to trigger a conditioned response. (5) Acquisition (a) Acquisition- the initial stage in classical conditioning; the phase associating a neutral stimulus with in unconditioned stimulus so that the neutral stimulus comes to elicit a conditioned response. (6) Extinction and Spontaneous Recovery
