Psych Of Learning Exam Review 02/15/2016 ▯ -The main difference between learning and natural selection is natural selection occurs on a species level (slower) where learning occurs on an individual level. Learning is change in behavior where natural selection affects across the species (mass death). Learning occurs over shorter period of time. Learning helps individual where natural selection does not ▯ -Natural selection depends on variation to change a species by mutation. ▯ -Which scenario(s) equate to learning?  A child is given a drug to prevent him from washing his hands 500 times a day A dog sits to receive a bone  A child can now reach the microwave to cook a burrito When your bird bites people he is put in time out so that he stops biting ▯ - A reflex is a highly stereotypic relationship between a specific event and a response to that event ▯ -A motal action pattern (instinct) is a series of interrelated acts found in all or nearly all members of a species ▯ -Which measure of learning is this? (7 measures of learning) How fast a rat completes a maze speed The time between a bell is rung and a dog drools Latency How many answers a pigeon gets correct compared to the ones he misses reduction in errors ▯ -What design is this comparing 2 different breeds of dogs between subjects comparing poodles’ intelligence before and after drug us within subjects ▯ -The most important trials are first trials rescola wagner theory ▯ - Conditioning is most effective when both the CS and US affect the same receptors ? ▯ - A stuffed spongebob is paired with a steak. Pretty soon a dog begins to drool at jjust the sight of spongebob CS: Spongebob UCS: steak  CR: drool UCR: drool ▯ - Pairing CS and US  a puff of smoke is blown into a dogs eye and 1 second later a bell rings  a bell rings and a puff of smoke is blown into a dogs eye trace ▯ - the amount of times that the UCS occurs with the CS: number of pairing ▯ -how close in time the ucs and cs occur: contiguity ▯ - A dog is presented with a flash of light and a tone simultaneously followed by food. When the tone and light are tested separately the tone is an effective CS, but the light is not. Overshadowing ▯ -A bell and light are frequently presented together (your test dog sees this). The dog is then conditioned to drool to the bell. One would expect that if the light were then to be conditioned quickly that pre-sensory conditioning occurred ▯ - Higher order conditioning: (second order) previously conditioned stimulus is paired with a new stimulus and the new stimulus ▯ -Rats that were raised in more diverse environments developed larger brains and were able to learn faster ▯ -(pictures of graphs) inter trial intervals ▯ -you conditioned your dog to drool to a bell. Next you wish to create a compound conditioned stimulus by pairing a light with the bell. Your dog does not condition to the light. blocking ▯ ▯ ▯
