in a later modification of the classic bobo doll experiment, the children who saw a model beat up the doll and then get rewarded showed aggression toward the doll. Which of the following statements is true about the other children, who saw the model get punished rather than rewared?

They did not beat up the doll until offered a reward to demostrate what the model had done.

stimulus generalization

A teacher has decided to give caught being good tickets to her students when they behave according to class rules. this teacher also reards students with gold stars each time they improve their math speed. this teacher is using

Operant conditiong

Carla was bitten by a dog when she was a toddler. She's older now, but still backs up in fear when ever a dog approaches her. This is an example of

conditioned emotional response

in Seligman's study on dogs, the dogs that were not conditioned to fear the tone pg 199-200

jumped over the fence when the shock started

a naturally occuring stimylus that leads to an involuntary (reflex) response is a/an

unconditioned stimulus

learning that remains hidden until its application becomes useful is called

latent learning

in his study of rats in mazes, Tolman concluded that the rats in the group that didn't receive reinforcement for solving the maze had

learned the maze by wandering around in it and formimg a cognitive map

in his classical conditioning experiment, Pavlov's dogs were conditioned to salivate when they

heard the sound of the metronome

the law of effect states if an action is followed by a pleasurable consquence, it is likely to

be repeated

_____ is the disapperance or weaking of a learned response following the removal or absence of the unconditioned stimulus (in classical conditioning) or the removal of the reinforcer( in operant conditioning)


in an ________________ the occcurrence of reinforcement is more predictable and therefor the individual being reinforced is more likely to adjust his response to the timimg of the reinforcement

fixed interval schedule of reinforcement

is learning behavior by watching a model perform that behavior

observational learning

what are the two kinds of behavior that all organisms are capable of

involuntary and voluntary

changes such as an ihncrease in height or the size of the brain are called


Pavlov initially set out to study his dogs

digestive systems

which psychologist is best known for working with children and a bobo doll rto study whether aggressive behavior is learned by watching others be aggressive

Albert Bandura

A recent study suggests a link between spanking and

aggression in children

_________ pioneered the empirical study of the basic principles of classical conditioning.

Ivan Pavlov

Which of the following is one of Bandura's elements of observational learning


______ is the classical conditioning of a relex response or emotion by watching the reaction of another person.

Vicarious Conditioning

the learning/performance distinction is a kind of

latent learning

Aggression in children is _______ violence on TV.

positively correlated with

The brelands determined that most Skinnerian behaviorists made the false assumption that

all response are equally able to be conditioned any stimulus

Punishment is more difficult than reinforcement because

it is difficult to get rid of a well established response

After a lengthy period during which UCS was not applied, Pavlov's Dogs stopped responding to the metronome. If a weaker conditioned response to the metronome occurred at some point after this, it would be a demonstration of

Spontaneous recovery

For classical conditioning to be successful, the CS must

come before the UCS

Kohler believed that Sultan the chimp had solved the problem of reaching the banana

by having sudden perception of relationships

Severe punishment may encourage

lying to avoid punishment

In defining learning, ____ refers to the fact that when people learn anything, some part of their brain is physically changed to record what they've learned, and that change remains even if the behavior doesn't.

relatively permanent

A behavior is more resistant to extinction if it is

partially reinforced

The neutral stimulus must be paired with the un conditioned stimulus ______ in order to result in successful conditioning.

several times

Observational learning cannot take place if the learner does not first

pay attention to what is happening

In negative reinforcement , a(n) _______ is removed; in punishment by removal an ____ is removed.

unpleasant thing ; pleasant/desirable thing

Sammy and his friends are watching animated fight scences on television. Bandura's findings in the Bobo doll experiment, it seems likely that later, at play and his friends will

imitate many of the violent actions they witnessed on tv

_____ is an example of punishment by removal

Grounding a teenager

The scientist conducted research to establish the theory known as cognitive perspective

Robert Rescorla

one of the first psychologists to conduct studies in an attempt to explain human behavior was

John Watson

_______ believed that classical conditioning occurred because the CS became a substitute for the UCS when paired closely together in time..


"Little Albert" acquired a conditioned emotional response to the rat when its presentation was coupled with

a loud noise

In his classical conditioning experiment, Pavlov's dogs were conditioned to salivate when they

heard the sound of the metronome

The cognitive perspective of classical conditioning involves

the mental activity of consciously expecting something else to occur

In Tolman's study on rats, the second group, who did not get reinforced with food until the tenth day, then

began to solve the maze immediately

When a behavior is reinforced according to the number of responses required, it is

on a ratio schedule of reinforcement

Kohler determined that insight

cannot be gained through trial- and-error learning alone.

it is believed that animals revert quickly to instinctual behaviors when the new tasks they are learning have a strong association with

obtaining food

the response that is given to the conditioned stimulus is not usually quite as strong as the original unconditioned response,

but it is essentially the same response.

In Pavlov's studies, the salivation of dogs in response to food in their mouths is the

unconditioned response

Which of the following would be considered negative reinforcement?

a child

Three- year-old Ellie sees her big brother go across the monkey bars. Ellie tries to do the monkey bars but her arms are not strong enough to hang or long enough to reach the next bar. According to Bandura, Ellie is lacking which element of observational learning ?


Which of the following is an example of maturation ?

One - year-old baby Jesse could not walk two months ago but now he can

One of B.F. Skinner's famous experiments involved

teaching rats to learn how to obtain food

Which of the following individuals believed that cognition was an important part of behavior?

not bf skinner pg 197

Following a response with the removal of something unpleasant is called

negative reinforcement

One of the first psychologists to conduct studies in an attempt to explain human behavior was

John Watson

In a variable ratio schedule of reinforcement

the number of required responses changes often

Throndike developed the _____ which said in part that if an action is followed by a pleasurable consequence, it will tend to be repeated

law of effect

In his classical conditioning experiment Pavlov's dogs were conditioned to salivate when they

heard the sound of the metronome

In Kohler's experiment, Sultan the chimp first used just one stick that was lying in his cage to rake the banana into the the cage, and then learned to fit two sticks to together. this was an example of


In conditioning the concept of shaping is achieved by reinforcing

consistent punishment

an unconditioned stimulus is always followed by a(n)

unconditioned response

Further studies that followed Kohler's work with chimpanzees

have found support for the concept of animal insight

Experiments have shown that laboratory rats will experience conditioned taste averdion for a food they swallow _______ before becoming nauseated


Birds who find their food by sight will avoid any object or insect that simply looks like the one that made them sick. This is a result of

biological preparedness

In conditioning, the concept of shaping is achieved by reinforcing

successive approximations
