5 True/False Questions
CR (Conditioned Response) → In classical conditioning, the learned response to a previously neutral (but now conditioned) stimulus.
Partial Reinforcement → 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
Shaping → An operant conditioning procedure in which reinforcers guide behavior toward closer and closer approximations of the desired behavior.
Prosocial Behavior → In classical conditioning, the learned ability to distinguish between a conditioned stimulus and stimuli that do not signal an unconditioned stimulus.
Discrimination → The tendency, once a response has been conditioned, for stimuli similar to the conditioned stimulus to elicit similar responses.
