Psych Lectures Notes 10/07/10 -Learning Defined: Any relative permanent change in behavior that occurs because of experiences -Conditioning: a kind of learning that involves associations between environmental stimuli and responses. Types of Conditioning -Classical Conditioning: (Pavlov) -The organism learns to associate two stimuli -One produces a response that originally was only produced by the other -Classic example of dog/bell and salivation -Unconditioned Stimulus (US) : elicits the unconditioned response (food) -Unconditioned Response (UR): response which is automatically produced (salivate) -Conditioned Stimulus (CS): originally neutral stimulus that elicits a behavior after being paired with a US (bell) -Conditioned Response (CR): response elicited by the unconditioned stimulus (salivate to bell) -Extinction: repeat the conditioned stimulus without the unconditioned stimulus over time and the conditioned response disappear -Spontaneous Recovery: after a response has been extinguished it may spontaneously reappear after the passage of time with exposure to the conditioned stimulus. -Higher Order Conditioning: pairing a neutral stimulus with the conditioned stimulus will create another conditioned stimulus, although a weaker conditioned response.
