5 Matching questions

  1. deprivation
  2. eliciting stimulus (or "elicitor")
  3. instrumental (operant) conditioning
  4. input units
  5. contingency
  1. a a relation in which the occurrence of one event depends on the occurrence of another event
    (2)
  2. b procedure for studying or producing learning by presenting an eliciting stimulus after a response
    (2)
  3. c object or event that reliably produces behavior as result of natural (phylogenic) selection
    (1) (note: same as US)
  4. d an element of an adaptive neural network, simulating the activity of a neuron or group of neurons that mediate environmental events
    (2)
  5. e reduction of contact with a stimulus to levels below ad libitum (normal free access) levels (2)

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. a spurious environment-behavior relation that emerges without true dependencies between the behavior and eliciting stimuli
    (2)
  2. an element of an adaptive neural network, simulating the activity of a neuron or group of neurons that mediate behavioral events
    (2)
  3. use of computers to model relations among real-world events, including those between the environment and the behavior of an organism
    (2)
  4. the response elicited by the US in the classical procedure
    (1)
  5. behavioral complexity is best understood as outcome of selection mechanisms operating in the individual's environment
    (2)

5 True/False questions

  1. blockinga neuromodulator released by neurons in the VTA; its presence in a synapse produces long term increases in synaptic efficacy (2)

          

  2. respondentsresponses that are reliably evoked by a stimulus
    (1)

          

  3. conditioned reinforcerstimulus that functions as reinforcer in operant procedures by having been paired with other reinforcers.
    (2)

          

  4. habituationweakening of unlearned environment-behavior relations when an stimulus is repeatedly presented without consequence
    (2)

          

  5. dopaminea neuromodulator released by neurons in the VTA; its presence in a synapse produces long term increases in synaptic efficacy (2)
