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
