background image Chapter 6.2 Review  Compare continuous and partial reinforcement.  Provide examples of each type of  schedule of reinforcement.  ○ Continuous Reinforcement: The response is reinforced every time (flipping  a light switch turns on the light).  ○ Partial Reinforcement: The response is reinforced SOME of the times  (playing a claw-machine game).  Describe the differences between classical and operant conditioning.  ○ Classical is associating a conditioned stimuli with an unconditioned stimuli.  Operant is associating a certain behavior with a good or bad consequence  afterwards.  What are the pros associated with using operant conditioning in real life?  i. You can manipulate people to do what you want them to do  ii. People will do your wishes without realizing they're being  manipulated  What are the cons associated with using operant conditioning?   iii. The behavior might not last once the consequence is gone  iv. You might accidentally reinforce an undesirable behavior  Define latent learning and recognize examples of it. 
background image ○ Learning something, but not demonstrating it until there is motivation to  (like understanding people need to stop at a red light, but only  demonstrating this while driving yourself).  Describe or recognize the social-cognitive learning theories and recognize  examples of them.  ○ Insight and Latent Learning: Insight is when you suddenly have a  realization about something (when you suddenly realize how to solve a  math problem). Latent learning is learning that happens without behavioral  indications (a squirrel being aware of its surroundings).  ○ Observational Learning: Learning by seeing others do it (learning how to  tie your shoes by seeing others do it).  Describe Albert Bandura's experiment. What did this experiment demonstrate?  ○ Children saw adults be aggressive towards a boba doll in person or  through video. The children exposed to this showed significantly more  aggressive behaviors when compared to children who weren’t exposed to  the models.   ○ This experiment demonstrated observational learning.  How do experiences and enriched environments affect the brain?  ○ It can created more synaptic connections between neurons and lead to a  thicker cortex.  Describe the role of evolution in learning.
