What does unconditional stimulus mean?



2.12.16

Alex

Learning

- Change in an organisms behavior or thought as a result of experience  Classical Conditioning

- Form of learning in which an organism come to respond to a previously  neutral stimulus that has been paired with a stimulus that previously brought  out an automatic response

- Pavlov (physician, looked at dogs, assistants would go in and ring a bell every time they went in to feed them, and every time the bell rang more saliva  would be produced)

Operant Conditioning

Terminology

- Unconditional stimulus (without training)

∙ Something that elicits an automatic response (e.g. food)

- Unconditional response  

∙ Automatic response to an unconditioned stimulus that does not need  to be learned (e.g. tummy rumbling, salivation, feeling hungry)


What does unconditional response mean?



- Conditioned stimulus  

∙ Something that comes to elicit automatic response after becoming  associated with unconditioned stimulus

- Conditioned response  

∙ Response to unconditioned stimulus that is now elicited by conditioned stimulus  

Classical Conditioning  If you want to learn more check out What promotes allopatric speciation?

- Acquisition

∙ Learning

∙ Pairing stimulus and response together  

- Spontaneous Recovery  Don't forget about the age old question of Why was lamarck's theory discredited?

∙ When the conditioned response to a conditioned stimulus comes back  after a delay in exposure

∙ E.g. smells that trigger memories or feelings  

- Renewal Effect

∙ When the conditioned response to a conditioned stimulus comes back  when organism is placed in original environment in which learning  occurred  


What does conditioned stimulus mean?



∙ E.g. old feelings returning when back home, better test performance in  familiar environment Don't forget about the age old question of What does zenith mean?

- Stimulus Generalization Don't forget about the age old question of Which isolation is the prevention of interbreeding due to differences in physiology?
If you want to learn more check out What is the meaning of institutions in competing theories?
Don't forget about the age old question of How do you find the magnitude of a subtraction vector?

∙ Things that look like conditioned stimulus elicit conditioned response  without training  

- Stimulus Discrimination

∙ Ability to differentiate between conditioned stimulus and similar stimuli - Higher Order Conditioning  

∙ Pairing conditioned stimulus with other stimuli which come to elicit  conditioned response

∙ Weaker conditioned response the higher-order you go ∙ Most organisms top out at a fourth- order conditioning ∙ E.g. 1. Food= US, 2. Blue= CS, 3. Red= CS, 4. Yellow=CS
