5 Matching questions

  1. learning
  2. extinction
  3. response contingency
  4. aquisition
  5. operant chamber
  1. a a relatively permanent change in an organism's behavior due to experience.
  2. b a chamber, also known as a Skinner box, containing a bar or key that an animal can manipulate to obtain a food or water reinforcer, with attached devices to record the animal's rate of bar pressing or key pecking
  3. c the 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
  4. d In classical conditioning , the initial learning of the conditioned response (CR)
  5. e relationship that occurs when a consequence is dependant on the organisms emitting the desired behavior

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. animals can learn from experience, with or without reinforcement
  2. an emotional response that has been linked to a previously nonemotional (neutral) stimulus by classical conditioning
  3. the process by which consequences lead to an increase in the likelihood that the response will occur again
  4. increasing behaviors by stopping or reducing negative stimuli (unpleaseant event), such as shock. A negative reinforcer is any stimulus that, when removed after a response, strengthens the response. (Note: negative reinforcement is not punishment
  5. in operant conditioning, any event that strengthens the behavior it follows

5 True/False questions

  1. contrapreparednessthe acquisition of information that often is not immediately acted on but is stored for later use

          

  2. partial reinforcementincreasing behaviors by stopping or reducing negative stimuli (unpleaseant event), such as shock. A negative reinforcer is any stimulus that, when removed after a response, strengthens the response. (Note: negative reinforcement is not punishment

          

  3. spontaneous recoverythe reappearance, after a rest period, of an extinguished conditioned response

          

  4. immediate reinforcementreinforcement given immediately after the desired behavior

          

  5. fixed-ratio schedulein operant conditioning, a schedule of reinforcement that reinforces a response only after a specified number of responses
