classical conditioning
we learn to associate two stimuli and thus to anticipate events.
observational learning
we learn from others' experiences and examples
classical conditioning
a type of learning in which an organism comes to associate stimuli. A neutral stimulus that signals an unconditioned stimulus(UCS) begins to produce a response that anticipates and prepares for the unconditioned stimulus. Also called Pavlovian conditioning.
the view that pyschology
(1)should be objective science that
(2)studies behavior without reference to mental processes. Most research pyschologist agree with (1) but not with (2)
unconditioned response(UCR)
in classical conditioning, the unlearned, naturally occuring response to the uncoditioned stimulus(UCS), such as salvitation when food is in the mouth
unconditioned stimulus(UCS)
in classical conditioning, a stimulus that unconditionally-naturally and automatically-triggers a response
conditioned response(CR)
in classical conditioning, the learned response to a previously neutral conditioned stimulus(CS)
conditioned stimulus(CS)
in classical conditioning, an originally irrelevant stimulus that, after association with an unconditioned stimulus(UCS),comes to trigger a conditioned response
