5 Matching Questions

  1. reinforcement
  2. continuous reinforcement
  3. discrimination
  4. extinction
  5. partial (intermittent) reinforcement
  1. a in operant conditioning, any event that strengthens the behavior it follows
  2. b reinforcing the desired response every time it occurs
  3. c the diminishing of a conditioned response; occurs in classical conditioning when an unconditioned stimulus (UCS) does not follow a conditioned stimulus (CS); occurs in operant conditioning when a response is no longer reinforced
  4. d reinforcing a response only part of the time; results in slower acquisition of a response but much greater resistance to extinction than does continuous reinforcement
  5. e in classical conditioning, the learned ability to distinguish between a conditioned stimulus and other stimuli that do not signal an unconditioned stimulus

5 Multiple Choice Questions

  1. in classical conditioning, an originally irrelevant stimulus that, after association with an unconditioned stimulus (UCS), comes to trigger a conditioned response.
  2. an event that decreases the behavior that it follows
  3. behavior that opertes on the environment, producing consequences.
  4. positive, constructive, helpful behavior. the opposite of antisocial behavior
  5. the initial stage in classical conditioning; the phase associating a neural stimulus with an unconditioned stimulus so that the neutral stimulus comes to elicit a conditioned response. in operant conditioning, the strengthening of a reinforced response

5 True/False Questions

  1. modelingthe process of observing and imitating a specific behavior

          

  2. unconditioned response (UCR)in classical conditioning, the unlearned, naturally occurring response to the unconditioned stimulus (UCS), such as salivation when food is in the mouth

          

  3. operant chamber ("skinner box")a chamber 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. used in operant conditioning research

          

  4. conditioned response (CR)in classical conditioning, the unlearned, naturally occurring response to the unconditioned stimulus (UCS), such as salivation when food is in the mouth

          

  5. unconditioned stimulus (UCS)in classical conditioning, a stimulus that unconditionally - naturally and automatically - triggers a response
