5 Matching questions

  1. Discrimination
  2. Operant Conditioning
  3. Associative Learning
  4. Respondent Behavior
  5. Generalization
  1. a Learning that certain events occur together
  2. b a type of learning in which behavior is strengthened if followed by reinforcement or diminished if followed by punisher
  3. c the tendency, once a response has been conditioned, for stimuli similar to the conditioned stimulus to elicit similar responses
  4. d behavior that occurs as an automatic response to some stimulus
  5. e in classical conditioning, the learned ability to distinguish between a conditioned stimulus and other stimuli that do not signal an unconditioned stimulus

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. an event that decreases the behavior that it follows
  2. A relatively permanent change in an organism's behavior due to experience
  3. an operant conditioning procedure in which reinforcers guide behavior toward closer and closer approximations of a desired behavior
  4. frontal lobe neurons that fire when performing certain actions or when observing another doing so
  5. the diminishing of a conditioned response; in classical conditioning this occurs when an unconditioned stimulus (US) does not follow a conditioned stimulus (CS)

5 True/False questions

  1. Spontaneous Recoveryreinforcing the desired response every time it occurs


  2. Unconditioned Stimulus (US)in classical conditioning, an originally irrelevant stimulus that, after association with an unconditioned stimulus (US), comes to trigger a conditioned response (CR)


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


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


  5. Reinforcerin operant conditioning, any event that strengthens the behavior it follows
