Friday, February 19, 2016 Psychology Lecture Notes Week Five Starting on Friday, February 19, 2016 for Test Two - *Learning: this is referring to behavior. How do you structure things together? Think the behaviors you act out because of what you have learned. These are NOT reflexes or instincts you have naturally. *You learn the habit of binge eating. For example, you eat a lot when you feel like shit. THERE ARE THREE TYPES OF LEARNING. - *Important terms: STIMULUS AND RESPONSE - *STIMULUS: something happening- can even refer to the room you are visiting the doctor in, seeing a piece of cake, or seeing a needle. - *RESPONSE: the stimulus prompts this. - First type of learning: *ASSOCIATIVE LEARNING: a formation of associations or connections among stimuli and behaviors. (If A happens… B is likely to follow) *Dog gets into the trash and then hides because she knows she will get in trouble. *When you go to a movie theatre, you will always crave popcorn. *If you get in a car wreck when turning left, your brain learns to fear left turns because your brain associates car wrecks with left turns. *When you go home for Christmas break, you have a better behavior. - *Associate Learning: *CONDITIONING: this is the process of learning associations - There are two types of Associative Learning: CLASSICAL CONDITIONING AND OPERANT CONDITIONING - *CLASSICAL CONDITIONING: this happens before you exhibit a behavior. *Think about how a needle and pain go together. When you see a needle, you automatically think pain. You are anticipating events. - *OPERANT CONDITIONING: this is the exact opposite of classical conditioning. Associating a behavior and its consequence. *Think about if you punch someone, you will go to jail. After that, you are less likely to punch someone. It’s all about what happens after you exhibit a behavior. - The second type of learning: NON-ASSOCIATIVE LEARNING: This learning changes something you’ve already learned. It will make you respond more or respond less to a stimulus. - Types of Non-Associative Learning: HABITUATION AND SENSITIZATION. 1 Friday, February 19, 2016 - * Habituation: decreased responding to a stimulus. *Going to a really loud concert that alarms you at first but then you become used to it. You become used to the sound of planes flying over your house. You become used to the sounds of a train while it passes your house. You stop noticing when the AC kicks on and off. You become used to the sound of the road noise. - *Sensitization * you become sensitive to it. You increase your response to a stimulus. Ex: a buzzing fly or late night noises - Examples of Habituation: you put a scent in your car and you become used to it but then when other people get in your car they realize it smells great but you’ve become used to it so you really do not notice it anymore. - Examples of Sensitization: You are okay with people chewing, but once people smack it’s game over. - The third type of learning: OBSERVATIONAL LEARNING: watching a friend get hit in the face by a basketball, so now you are scared of that happening to you. - *CLASSICAL CONDITIONING: something happens when you respond. Always think about *IVAN PAVLOV- he had a famous dog experiment- how much did a dog salivate during digestion? 2
