      • Dog harnessed and salivated when he saw the food after the bell rang
      • experiment
        • NS=No response, US= UR
        • NS+US=UR

        • Negative Reinforcement
          • Increase in behaviour by receiving something unpleasant
        • Punishment
          • Decrease in behaviour by anything unpleasant
      • Behaviour modification
