Psychology of Learning (PSYC 210) Guided Notes: Exam 4 Respondent Conditioning I: It’s Not Me It’s My Genes Background We’ve introduced the topic of respondent conditioning (see lectures on evolution and elicited behavior). Respondent conditioning is synonymous with ________________ conditioning and ________________ conditioning When we think of respondent conditioning, we think of 1 experiment in particular ________________ with dogs, during which he measured salivation Bell repeatedly signaled food in the mouth of a food deprived dog, salivation was (eventually) elicited by the stimulus (bell) and the food. In point of fact, it was probably not a ________________, but a ________________, see subsequent video. Respondent conditioning is an instance of ________________ applied to stimulus ________________, not consequential operations Stated differently, it’s focused on the ________________. Understanding this figure is essential. Know each step in the process of conditioning.

Psychology of Learning (PSYC 210) Guided Notes: Exam 4 Whereas the _______________________________ we discussed (Skinner’s work) focused on both, antecedent stimuli (e.g., a green light) and the consequential stimuli (e.g., food after 50 responses) ________________________________ : Process whereby a neutral stimulus (NS) acquires characteristics of an unconditional stimulus (US) The procedure (operation) involves simple ________________ _______________________________ : A stimulus that has no eliciting effect What are some examples? Note, our examples always depend on context. _______________________________ : A stimulus that elicits a reflex (response) without any prior history What are some examples? Tying Concepts Together When a NS acquires the ability to elicit a response, we call it a ________________________________ ( CS ). At that point we call the response, a ________________________________ ( CR ). SO: Let’s tie this back to Pavlov’s experiments: The metronome or bell is (initially) a ________________ When it acquires the ability to produce salivation, the metronome (bell) becomes a ________________ The salivation that occurs as a function of only the metronome (bell) is now a ________________ ________________ : A previously neutral stimulus that now elicits a response due to its pairing with an unconditional stimulus ________________ : The response that is learned. It occurs following the presentation of the conditional stimulus CS and CR The relationship between the CS and the CR is called a ________________. This is to be distinguished from an unconditional reflex (UR), which involves NO ________________. In this case, the US elicits the UR

It is an antecedent stimulus, but it is NOT the same as a ________________________________. The basic idea here is that a stimulus that is paired with (correlated with) a reinforcer (food) will occasion
