5 Matching questions

  1. operant chamber
  2. Behavior modification
  3. extinction
  4. extinction (Operant conditioning)
  5. variable ration schedule
  1. a The fading out of a response following an initial burst of that behavior after the withdrawal of reinfocement
  2. b in operant condiditon, a schedule of reinforcemetnt that reinforces a response only after an unpredictable amount of time
  3. c the diminishing of a conditioned response; occurs in classical conditioning when an unconditioned stimulus does not follow a conditioned stimulus; occurs in operant conditioning when a response is no longer reinforced
  4. d a chamber, also known as a Skinner box, 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
  5. e A technique that brings about therapeutic change in behavior through the use of secondary reinforecers

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. frontal lobe neurons that fire when performing certain actions or when observing another doing so
  2. in classical conditioning, the unlearned, naturally occurring response to the unconditioned stimulus (UCS)
  3. a relatively permanent change in an organism's behavior due to experience.
  4. the TIMING of the response (since the previous reinforcer) determines reinforcement; the number of responses made during the interval does not matter; LOWER rates of RESPONDING than ratio schedules.
  5. reinforcing the desired response every time it occurs

5 True/False questions

  1. discriminationin classical conditioning, the learned ability to distinguish between a conditioned stimulus and stimuli that do not signal an unconditioned stimulus


  2. food aversionthe process of observing and imitating a specific behavior


  3. discriminative stimulusin classical conditioning, an originally irrelevant stimulus that, after association with an unconditioned stimulus, comes to trigger a conditioned response


  4. operant conditioninga type of learning in which behavior is strengthened if followed by a reinforcer or diminished if followed by a punisher


  5. immediate reinforcementreinforcement given some period of time after the desired behavior is exhibited
