a form of learning based on the repeated association of two (or more) different stimuli; learning is only said to have occurred when a particular stimulus consistently produces a response that it did not previously produce.
a learning process through which stimuli and responses become associated with one another.
the stimulus object or event that precedes a particular response, signals the probable consequence for the response and therefore influences the occurrence of the response.
the gradual decrease in the strength or rate of a response; in classical conditioning, extinction occurs over time when the unconditioned stimulus is not presented; in operant conditioning, extinction occurs over time when reinforcement ceases.
the ability to distinguish between two (or more) different stimuli, even if the stimuli are similar
the tendency for similar stimuli to produce the same but not necessarily identical, response
in classical conditioning, the process through which an organism learns to associate two events (the conditioned stimulus with the unconditioned stimulus).
