Unit 4 Learning and Cognitive Processes

  • Ch 10 Memory and Thought
  • Ch 11 Thinking and Language
  • Ch 12 Motivation and Emotion

Ch 9 Learning Principles and Applications
  • Classical conditioning
  • A learning procedure in which associations are
    made b/w a _________ stimulus a ___________
  • A persons or animals old response becomes
    attached to a _________.
  • Its a type of _________. This type of learning
    is a relatively permanent change in a behavioral
    tendency that results from ___________.
  • Discovered by ______________ accidentally.

  • Pavlovs experiment
  • Pavlov began by ringing a ________ then quickly
    placing some meat on a dogs tongue. He used a
    tuning fork b/c it was a neutral stimulus (a
    stimulus that ________________ any part of the
    unconditioned response).
  • After only doing this a few times, the dog
    started _______ as soon as it heard the sound,
    even if _______ was placed in its mouth.
  • This showed that a neutral stimulus can cause a
    formerly _________ __________.

  • The unconditioned stimulus (UCS) is an event that
    elicits a certain _________________ typically w/o
    previous training (the food).
  • The unconditioned response (UCR) is an organisms
    natural reaction to a stimulus ______
    (salivating at the food).
  • The conditioned stimulus (CS) is a
    ________________ that elicits a given response
    _______________ _______ in which it has been
    paired w/ an unconditioned stimulus (the tuning
  • The conditioned response (CR) is the
    _______________ to a conditioned stimulus
    (salivating at the tuning fork).

  • General principles of classical conditioning
  • Helps animals humans ______________
    _______________ to avoid danger.
  • Acquisition of a classically conditioned response
    usually _______________. Pavlov found that
    classical conditioning was most effective when
    the CS was presented ____________ the UCS (tuning
    fork before food).
  • Generalization occurs when an animal responds to
    a __________ similar to the original CS w/o prior
    training w/ the 2nd stimulus. Pavlov conditioned
    a dog to salivate at the sight of a circle
    found that it would salivate at the sight of an
    _______ also.
  • Discrimination is the ability to respond
    differently to similar but ________________.
    Pavlov was able to teach the dog to only respond
    to the ___________________.
  • Generalization discrimination are part of your
    everyday life both ____________.

  • 4. Extinction is the _________________ of a CR
    when the CS is repeatedly presented w/o the UCS.
    Eventually the dog quit salivating after hearing
    the tuning fork when Pavlov repeatedly ________
    it food afterwards.
  • __________________ may occur after a rest period
    when the CS causes a CR but is not followed by a
    UCS. However the CR doesnt come back at its
    ____________. After a while Pavlov used the
    tuning fork w/o giving the dog food found
    that the dog did salivate but not as much.
