Control of a response is shifted from an inborn stimulus to a new stimulus. This helps explain _______.

What is Involuntary Behavior?

100

A response is increased or decreased due to REINFORCEMENT or PUNISHMENT

What is operant conditioning?

100

This person is the Director of ADVANCE

Dr. Hynes

100

increasing behaviors by presenting POSITIVE stimuli, such as food. A positive reinforce in any stimulus that, when presented after a response, strengthens the response

What is positive reinforcement?

100

A systemetic, relatively permanent change in behavior that occurs through experience

What is learning?

200

In Pavlov's experiment the name when sound (stimulus) resulted in a drool (response)  is ____

What is Learned Association?

200

in operant conditioning, a reinforcement schedule that reinforces a response only after a specified number of responses

fixed-ratio

200

What was the baby's name that Pavlov studied on? (unethically)

Who is Little Baby Albert?

200

increasing behaviors by STOPPING or reducing negative stimuli, such as shock. A negative reinforce is any stimulus that, when removed after a response, strengthens the response (negative reinforcement is not punishment)

What is negative reinforcement?

200

When a child learns through observation and imitating another's behavior

What is observational behavior?

300

the diminishing of a conditioned response; occurs in classical conditioning when a unconditioned stimulus (US) does not follow a conditioned stimulus (CS); occurs in operant condition when a response is no longer reinforced

the reappearance, after a pause, of an extinguished conditioned response

What is extinction and spontaneous recovery?

300

in operant conditioning, a reinforcement schedule that reinforces a response after an unpredictable number of responses

variable-ratio

300

This person is the author of the textbook

Who is Laura King?
300

in operant conditioning, a stimulus that elicits a response after association with reinforcement (in contrast to related stimuli not associated with reinforcement)

discriminative stimulus

300

in classical conditioning, the learned ability to distinguish between a conditioned stimulus and stimuli that do not signal an unconditioned stimulus

What is discrimination?

400

an event that decreases the behavior that it follows

punishment

400

in operant conditioning, a reinforcement schedule that reinforces a response only after a specified time has elapsed

fixed-interval

400
This scientist founded the term classical conditioning by studying dogs

Who is Pavlov?

400

reinforcing the desired response every time it occurs

continuous reinforcement

400

the tendency, once a response has been conditioned, for stimuli similar to the conditioned stimulus to elicit responses

generalization

500

A stimulus that produces a response without prior learning.


An unlearned reaction that is automatically elicited by the unconditioned stimulus

A previously neutral stimulus that eventually elicits a conditioned response after being paired with the uncondtioned stimulus

The learned response to the condtioned stimulus that occurs after a condtioned stimulus- unconditioned stimulus pairing

What are unconditioned stimulus, conditioned stimulus, unconditioned response, and conditioned response?

500

in operant conditioning, a reinforcement schedule that reinforces a response at unpredictable time intervals

variable-interval

500

This scientist created the term operant conditioning by testing birds and mice

Who is B.F. Skinner?

500


in classical conditioning, the initial stage, when one links a neutral stimulus and an unconditioned stimulus so that the neutral stimulus begins triggering the conditioned response. In operant conditioning, the strengthening of a reinforced response

acquisition
