Study Notes

Classical Conditioning

  • The term "response" refers to the observable reaction to a stimulus.
  • UCS stands for Unconditional Stimulus in classical conditioning.

Operant Conditioning

  • Reinforcement is meant to increase the frequency of a behavior.
  • In operant conditioning, the term "positive" means adding a pleasing stimulus to increase behavior.
  • Punishment is meant to decrease the frequency of a behavior.
  • In operant conditioning, the term "negative" means removing a pleasing stimulus or adding an unpleasant one to decrease behavior.
  • A deliberate action in operant conditioning is called a response.

Types of Conditioning

  • Associative learning occurring due to repeated pairing of two events is called classical conditioning.

Test your knowledge on classical conditioning and the concept of contiguity association. Assess your understanding of stimuli, responses, conditioned and unconditioned stimuli, and the process of learning through repeated pairing. Explore the relationship between events and behaviors in this quiz.
