Unformatted text preview: Topics for Friday, Nov 5 Wagner-Rescorla Real-Time Linear-Operator Model Models the “Surprise” Value of US Computational Equations Applying the Model CS-US Positive Correlation Wagner-Rescorla Real-Time Linear-Operator Model The Wagner-Rescorla Model of Pavlovian Conditioning is a linear-operator model. An operator is a mathematical expression or computational algorithm that is applied to a series of calculations. The Wagner-Rescorla operator is applied to a series arranged in a straight line or linear dimension. The straight line dimension on which the algorithm operates is the linear dimension of real-time. The model is applied to Pavlovian procedures, which are experienced sequentially in a straight line sequence along the linear dimension of real-time. The Wagner-Rescorla Model The Wagner-Rescorla Model attempts to capture computationally the psychological impact of “surprise.” According to the model, the presentation of the US will increase CS-US association to the extent that the presentation of the US is surprising or unexpected....
