Psychology 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) - 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 - Acquisition Learning Pairing stimulus and response together - Spontaneous Recovery 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 E.g. old feelings returning when back home, better test performance in familiar environment - Stimulus Generalization 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
