Learning (Part 1) Wednesday, April 13, 2016 12:27 PM Learning  A relatively permanent change in behavior or mental process resulting from practice or experience. o Change in behavior o Relatively permanent o Not plasticity o Not maturation  Classical/Pavlovian Conditioning o “Associations between two stimuli”  Operant Conditioning o “Associations between a response and its consequences”  Observational Learning o “Learning by watching others”  Classical Conditioning o A learning process in which two stimuli become associated and cause a change in behavior.  Choose two stimuli o Stimulus 1 (neutral)  no response o Stimulus 2 (meaningful)  response  Conditioning Procedure o Stimulus 1 + Stimulus 2 o Stimulus 1  response  Ivan Pavlov o Scientist that systematically studied how we form associations between stimuli (classical conditioning o Two Stimuli  Bell  Neutral  Food  Meaningful  Two Stimuli o Bell + Food  Result o Bell becomes meaningful  Four things in Pavlov’s Experiment: o Stimulus that starts out neutral o Meaningful stimulus o innate response to meaningful stimulus o Learned response to previously neutral stimulus  Four things in Pavlov’s Experiment: o Conditioned Stimulus o Stimulus that starts out neutral o Unconditioned Stimulus o Meaningful stimulus o Unconditioned Response o Innate response to meaningful stimulus o Conditioned Response o Learned response to previously neutral stimulus  A rat is placed in a box. A tone is played, followed immediately by an electric shock. The rat jumps and squeals in response to the electric shock. The next day, the rat is placed in the box and just the tone is played. In response, the rat freezes in fear.  Figure out what the CS, US, UR and CR are for practice  Stimulus generalization o Stimuli that are similar to the CS will also elicit the conditioned response to some degree.  Classical Conditioning in Real Life o Autoshaping o As a result of CS-US pairings, subjects begin to treat the CS like they would the US  Examples in Pigeons  Pigeons will start to peck at a light source that has been paired with food o Conditioned Fear o Are we born with out fears or do we acquire them over time?  Innate- reflexive response to stimuli  Learned- feelings of fear to stimuli o Remember the Little Albert Experiment  He made albert learn those fears, he was not born with them o Phobias  Irrational, extreme fears  Maybe we acquire them through classical conditioning experiences as well  If we acquire phobias through classical conditioning, then how might we get rid of a phobia?  Extinction training  Systematic desensitization  flooding o Taste Aversion Learning o Why does taste aversion learning occur so quickly and last for so long?  We are more biologically prepared to make certain types of associations quickly and permanently o Garcia Experiment  Group 1: Taste of food pellets + shock  Group 2: Size of food pellets + shock  Group 3: Taste of food pellets + illness  Group 4: Size of food pellets + illness o Acquisition  Conclusions: o We are more biologically prepared to make an internal sensation-internal state association (like taste and illness) and an external sensation-external state association (like size and shock).  We are NOT biologically prepared to make internal sensation – external state association (or vice versa).
