Habituation

Tendency to respond to stimuli lessens as the stimuli become more familiar.

1

Classical conditioning (Pavlov)

Creation of involuntary responses to stimuli.

2

Unconditioned stimulus

From the environment; triggers natural response.

3

Unconditioned response

Natural reaction to UCS

4

Conditioned stimulus

Paired with UCS; before pairing, the CS does not produce a response; after parent, it does.

5

Conditioned response

A response to a CS; the CR is often the same as the UCR, but it is a learned response.

6

Pavlov's Experiment

CS (bell) - no response
UCS (food) - UCR (salivation to food)
UCS (food) + CS (bell) - UCR (salivation to food)
CS (bell) - CR (salivation to bell)

7

Extinction

When the CS appears without UCS, the CR eventually disappears.

8

Spontaneous recovery

After extinction, the CS reappears and elicits CR.

9

Generalization

CR occurs to stimuli that are similar to CS.

10

Discrimination

CR only occurs to CS that was previously paired with UCS
