  4. in operant conditioning, any event that strengthens the behavior it follows
  5. in classical conditioning, the initial stage of learning; the phase associating a neutral stimulus with an unconditioned stimulus so that the neutral stimulus comes to elicit a conditioned response

5 True/False Questions
