Applications of Operant Conditioning:
Types of Reinforcers:
How do we learn?
Through acquisition of mental information.
Any event that strengthens a preceding response
Gradually guiding toward closer and closer approximations of the desired behaviour.
Neutral stimulus (NS):
In classical conditioning,
a stimulus that elicits
no response before conditioning.
Type of learning in which one learns to link two or more stimuli and anticipate events.
Learned ability to distinguish between a conditioned stimulus (which predicts the US) and other irrelevant stimuli.
Tendency, once a response has been conditioned, for stimuli similar to the conditioned stimulus to elicit similar responses.
Process of acquiring through experience new information or behaviors.
Unconditioned response (UR):
In classical conditioning, an unlearned, naturally occurring response (such as salivation) to an unconditioned stimulus (US) (such as food in the mouth).
Unconditioned stimulus (US):
in classical conditioning, a stimulus that unconditionally—naturally and automatically—triggers an unconditioned response (UR).
