Unconditioned stimulus -->
has an unconditioned behavior: becomes a conditioned response
process by which eventually the response goes away --> the response becomes extinct
the learned condition returns almost immediately after a rest period. The response returns when presented with stimulus
conditioned to similar stimuli. When conditioned to one thing, many other things similar produce the same conditioned reaction
one thing causes a reaction when something similar does not
gradually reducing the bond between the stimulus and the response by slowly introducing the stimulus while making them relax

replacing stimulus-reaction bond with a new bond (by introducing something pleasant with the stimulus)
replacing the bond for a bad feeling with something bad
