5 Written questions

5 Matching questions

  1. compound stimulus
  2. superstitious behavior
  3. respondents
  4. operants
  5. postsynaptic neuron
  1. a an object or event that includes separable stimulus components, such as a light and a tone
  2. b responses that 1. are less reliably evoked by antecedent stimuli than respondents, 2. the antecedent stimulus is not well specified, and 3. which generally produce eliciting consequences
  3. c the neuron receiving the stimulation
  4. d responses that are reliably evoked by a stimulus
  5. e a spurious environment-behavior relation that emerges without true dependencies between the behavior and eliciting stimuli

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. the response evoked by the CS in the classical procedure.
  2. the neuron transmitting (producing/sending) the stimulation
  3. object or event that reliably produces behavior as result of natural (phylogenic) selection
    (2) (note: same as eliciting stimulus)
  4. use of computers to model relations among real-world events, including those between the environment and the behavior of an organism
  5. the response elicited by the US in the classical procedure

5 True/False questions

  1. instrumental (operant) conditioninglimitations, resulting from natural selection, on the outcome of behavioral selection by reinforcement


  2. reflexreliable environment-behavior relation, largely the result of natural selection


  3. model preparationsartificial, highly simplified, experimental arrangements used to clearly show the effects of the variables being studied


  4. reinforceran eliciting stimulus that functions to select environment-behavior relations


  5. output unitsan element of an adaptive neural network, simulating the activity of a neuron or group of neurons that mediate behavioral events
