learning and can produce an unconditioned response 
Unconditioned Response – the response produced from an 
unconditioned stimulus 
Conditioned Stimulus  - an originally neutral stimulus 
which through association with the US comes to produce a 
close approximation of the UR
Conditioned Response  Generalization – to the extent that other stimuli resemble
