  3. law of effect

  5. discrimination
  1. a a mental representation of the layout of one's environment.
  2. b decreasing responsiveness with repeated stimulation. As infants gain familiarity with repeated exposure to a visual stimulus, their interest wanes and they look away sooner
  3. c in classical conditioning, the learned ability to distinguish between a conditioned stimulus and stimuli that do not signal an unconditioned stimulus
  4. d a built in disinclination (or even an inability) for certain conditioned stimuli to elicit particular conditioned responses
  5. e Thorndike's principle that behaviors followed by favorable consequences become more likely

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. A built in readiness for certain conditioned stimuli to elicit particualr conditioned responses , so less conditioning (training ) is necessary to produce learning
  2. an event that decreases the behavior that it follows
  3. reinforcing the desired response every time it occurs
  4. an irrational fear of a specific object or situation
  5. The fading out of a response following an initial burst of that behavior after the withdrawal of reinfocement

5 True/False questions

  1. conditioned responsein classical conditioning, the learned response to a previously neutral conditioned stimulus (CS)


  2. Behavior modificationA technique that brings about therapeutic change in behavior through the use of secondary reinforecers


  3. delayed reinforcementreinforcement given some period of time after the desired behavior is exhibited


  4. extinctionthe diminishing of a conditioned response; occurs in classical conditioning when an unconditioned stimulus does not follow a conditioned stimulus; occurs in operant conditioning when a response is no longer reinforced


  5. variable-interval schedulein operant conditioning, a schedule of reinforcement that reinforces a response at unpredictable time intervals
