  3. Spontaneous Recovery
  4. Observational Learning
  5. Respondent Behavior
  1. a increasing behaviors by stopping or reducing negative stimuli, such as shock
  2. b increasing behaviors by presenting positive stimuli, such as food
  3. c behavior that occurs as an automatic response to some stimulus
  4. d the reappearance, after a rest period, of an extinguished conditioned response
  5. e learning by observing others

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. an innately reinforcing stimulus, such as one that satisfies a biological need
  2. in classical conditioning, the learned ability to distinguish between a conditioned stimulus and other stimuli that do not signal an unconditioned stimulus
  3. an operant conditioning procedure in which reinforcers guide behavior toward closer and closer approximations of a desired behavior
  4. the process of observing and imitating a specific behavior
  5. a schedule of reinforcement that reinforces a response after an unpredictable number of responses

5 True/False questions

  1. Mirror Neuronsfrontal lobe neurons that fire when performing certain actions or when observing another doing so


  2. Fixed-interval Schedulea schedule of reinforcement that reinforces a response only after a specified time has elapsed


  3. Continuous Reinforcementreinforcing a response only part of the time


  4. Extinctionthe diminishing of a conditioned response; in classical conditioning this occurs when an unconditioned stimulus (US) does not follow a conditioned stimulus (CS)


  5. Operant Behaviorbehavior that operates on the environment, producing consequences
