Classical Conditioning: Definitions Unconditioned Stimulus (US):  a stimulus that has the ability to  produce a specified response before conditioning begins. (FOOD) Unconditioned Response (UR):  the response produced by the  US.  (SALIVATION PRODUCED BY FOOD) Conditioned Stimulus (CS):  an initially neutral stimulus that  comes to produce  a new response because it is associated  with the US. (BELL) (SALIVATION PRODUCED BY THE BELL) Conditioned Response (CR):  the response produced by the  CS.

Classical Conditioning: Basic Principles After conditioning has taken place, repeatedly presenting the CS  without the US will make the CR weaker and eventually make it  disappear. Acquisition Repeatedly pairing a CS with a US will produce a CR.

Unformatted text preview: 1 pairing = presenting the CS and then quickly presenting the US: Extinction X Classical Conditioning: Additional Principles Spontaneous Recovery Following extinction, the CR reappears at reduced strength if the CS is presented again after a rest period. Stimulus Generalization After a CR has been trained to a CS, that same CR will tend to occur to similar stimuli without further training; The greater the similarity, the stronger the response will be. Conditioning: Test for Generalization: Classical Conditioning A subject responds to the CS but not to a similar stimulus because the CS was paired with a US but the similar stimulus was presented without the US. X Stimulus Discrimination...
