5 Written questions

5 Matching questions

  1. Avoidance learning
  2. stimulus discrimination
  3. conditioned reinforcer
  4. mirror neurons
  5. operant conditioning
  1. a frontal lobe neurons that fire when performing certain actions or when observing another doing so
  2. b The ability to distinguish among stimuli similar to the CS and to respond only to the actual CS , in other words the response generlizes to similar stimuli (In Albert all fur coats all teddybears etc)
  3. c a type of learning in which behavior is strengthened if followed by a reinforcer or diminished if followed by a punisher
  4. d In classical conditioning ,, learning that occurs when a CS is paired with an unpleasant US that leads the organism to try to avoid the CS
  5. e a stimulus that gains its reinforcing power through its assocation with a primary reinforcer; also known as secondary reinforcer

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. reinforcement is based on the number of times the behavior occurs
  2. the tendency, once a response has been conditioned, for stimuli similar to the conditioned stimulus to elicit similar responses
  3. a reinforcement that represents a primary enforcer such as Money. Green paper has no actual value but it represents things you can buy (food which is primary reinforcer)
  4. the acquisition of information that often is not immediately acted on but is stored for later use
  5. in operant conditioning, any event that strengthens the behavior it follows

5 True/False questions

  1. immediate reinforcementreinforcement given immediately after the desired behavior


  2. unconditioned responsein classical conditioning, the unlearned, naturally occurring response to the unconditioned stimulus (UCS)


  3. partial reinforcementreinforcing a response only part of the time; results in slower acquisition of a response but much greater resistance to extinction than does continuous reinforcement


  4. punishmentan event that decreases the behavior that it follows


  5. law of effectThorndike's principle that behaviors followed by favorable consequences become more likely
