5 Written questions

5 Matching questions

  1. variable-interval schedule
  2. cognitive learning
  3. law of effect
  4. negative punishment
  5. habituation
  1. a occurs when a behavior leads to the removal of a pleasant event or circumstance thereby decreasing the likelihood of a recurrence of the behavior
  2. b in operant conditioning, a schedule of reinforcement that reinforces a response at unpredictable time intervals
  3. c Thorndike's principle that behaviors followed by favorable consequences become more likely
  4. d decreasing responsiveness with repeated stimulation. As infants gain familiarity with repeated exposure to a visual stimulus, their interest wanes and they look away sooner
  5. e the acquisition of information that often is not immediately acted on but is stored for later use

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. a relatively permanent change in an organism's behavior due to experience.
  2. an innately reinforcing stimulus, such as one that satisfies a biological need
  3. In classical conditioning, the reappearance of an extinguished response after a period of nonexposure to the conditioned stimulus. Events that occurs when the CS again elicits the CR after extinction has occured
  4. a built in disinclination (or even an inability) for certain conditioned stimuli to elicit particular conditioned responses
  5. increasing behaviors by stopping or reducing negative stimuli (unpleaseant event), such as shock. A negative reinforcer is any stimulus that, when removed after a response, strengthens the response. (Note: negative reinforcement is not punishment

5 True/False questions

  1. aquisitiondecreasing responsiveness with repeated stimulation. As infants gain familiarity with repeated exposure to a visual stimulus, their interest wanes and they look away sooner

          

  2. reinforcerin operant conditioning, any event that strengthens the behavior it follows

          

  3. ratio schedulethe 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.

          

  4. Behavior modificationA technique that brings about therapeutic change in behavior through the use of secondary reinforecers

          

  5. unconditioned responsein classical conditioning, the learned response to a previously neutral conditioned stimulus (CS)
