A stimulus which weakens behaviour because it is unpleasent and we try to avoid it
A consequence of behaviour that encourages or strengthens a behaviour; this might be seen as a reward.
A reward or pleasent consequence that increases the likelihood that a behaviour or action will be repeated.
When an unpleasent experience is removed after a behaviour or action has been made; this increases the liklihood of that behaviour or action being repeated
Changing behaviour in small steps
A procedure during which an animal or person learns to assosiate a reflex response with a new stimulus.
The stimulus that produces the reflex respone; such as the food for Pavlov's dog
The reflex response to an unconditioned stimulus, such as Pavlov's dogs salivation
A new stimulus presented with the UCS, such as the bell pr metronome in Pavlov's experiment
The response that is learnt; it now occours when the CS is presented, such as Pavlovs dogs salivation
A conditioned response which dies out
A conditioned response that has disappeared suddenly appears again
The conditioned response is produced when a similar stimulus to the original stimulus is presented
The conditioned response is only produced when a specific stimulus is presented
