  3. latent learninga relatively permanent change in an organism's behavior due to experience.

          

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

          

  5. continuous reinforcementreinforcing the desired response every time it occurs
