Unformatted text preview: PRINT Name We; 2; CLASSICAL CONDITIONING IN EVERYDAY LIFE For each classical conditioning procedure there is an example of “everyday life” behavior. How did these behaviors develop through classical conditioning? What specific stimuli may have functioned as the US and later the CS? What specific responses may have occurred as the UR and later the CR? You need to think about what may have occurred (i.e., think about what typically happens in your own daily life or in that of others that you have observed) that could be a reasonable explanation for the behavior change. ' Write the stimulus and response next to each component of classical conditioning. Be specific in identifying the possible stimuli and responses. Remember to logically speculate what could have led to these current behaviors (because this is what you may see in real life and do not know the history). Keep in mind that the UR and CR do not have to be the same. Also, keep in mind the procedure and how it works when identifyingthe components. By definition we should see a behavior change as the CR that would otherwise not occur on its own, and appears due to the association with the US. 1) DELAY CONDITIONING For months as you dropped food into the fish tank, you turn on the tank light so that the fish can see the food floating on top of the water.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
