Pavlov bell F. conditioned response (CR) i. learned response to a previously neutral CS ii. Pavlov: salivating after bell G. originally UCS and UCR are paired together naturally i. meat powder=salivating H. also, the CS causes no response i. bell=nothing I. during conditioning UCS and CS are presented together in time leading to the UCR i. bell then meat powder = salivating J. eventually, the CS can produce a CR all by itself i. bell = salivating III.Other terms of Classical Conditioning A. acquisition: the initial stage of learning, when response is established and strengthened i. when CS comes to cause CR to happen a) Pavlov: when dogs began salivating to bell B. extinction: the diminishing of a conditioned response i. stop pairing UCS with CS and eventually CS stops causing CR
