5 Matching questions

  1. Operant Chamber
  2. Conditioned Stimulus (CS)
  3. Negative Reinforcement
  4. Extinction
  5. Positive Reinforcement
  1. a increasing behaviors by presenting positive stimuli, such as food
  2. b a chamber containing a bar or key that an animal can manipulate to obtain a food or water reinforcer, with attached devices to record the animal's rate of bar pressing or key pecking
  3. c increasing behaviors by stopping or reducing negative stimuli, such as shock
  4. d in classical conditioning, an originally irrelevant stimulus that, after association with an unconditioned stimulus (US), comes to trigger a conditioned response (CR)
  5. e the diminishing of a conditioned response; in classical conditioning this occurs when an unconditioned stimulus (US) does not follow a conditioned stimulus (CS)

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. reinforcing a response only part of the time
  2. a schedule of reinforcement that reinforces a response only after a specified number of responses
  3. a stimulus that gains its reinforcing power through its association with a primary reinforcer
  4. a type of learning in which behavior is strengthened if followed by reinforcement or diminished if followed by punisher
  5. learning by observing others

5 True/False questions

  1. Cognitive Mapa mental representation of the layout of one's environment


  2. Spontaneous Recoverythe reappearance, after a rest period, of an extinguished conditioned response


  3. Modelingan operant conditioning procedure in which reinforcers guide behavior toward closer and closer approximations of a desired behavior


  4. Mirror Neuronsthe process of observing and imitating a specific behavior


  5. Variable-interval Schedulea schedule of reinforcement that reinforces a response at unpredictable time intervals
