5 Matching questions

  1. model preparations
  2. postsynaptic neuron
  3. dopamine
  4. taste aversion
  5. conditioned reinforcer
  1. a stimulus that functions as reinforcer in operant procedures by having been paired with other reinforcers.
    (2)
  2. b a neuromodulator released by neurons in the VTA; its presence in a synapse produces long term increases in synaptic efficacy (2)

  4. d artificial, highly simplified, experimental arrangements used to clearly show the effects of the variables being studied
    (2)

    (1)

5 Multiple choice questions

    (2)
  2. use of computers to model relations among real-world events, including those between the environment and the behavior of an organism
    (2)
  3. a behavioral process in which an earlier stimulus paired with an elicitor prevents learning with a later stimulus paired with the same elicitor
    (2)
  4. an object or event that includes separable stimulus components, such as a light and a tone
    (2)
  5. the occurrence of two events with a very short time interval between them
