A: Describe UCS or Unconditioned Stimulus:
The STIMULUS which automatically triggers a specific reflex e.g. food > salivation.
B: Describe UCR of unconditioned response:
The automatic RESPONSE to the unconditioned STIMULUS (UCS) e.g. food > salivation.
C: Describe NS or nuetral stimulus:
A STIMULUS which wouldnt normally trigger a specific REFLEX response e.g. Bell doesn't normally trigger salivation.
D: Describe cs or conditioned stimulus:
The NS or nuetral stimulus now triggers the reflex response e.g. bell > salivation.
E: NS nuetral stimulus + CS conditioned stimulus + ?
CONDITIONED RESPONSE. CR this is the learned response i.e. reflex behaviour is now triggers by CS e.g. salivation in response to the bell.
F: Describe what the term EXTINCTION means and give and example ...
EXTINCTION - If a conditioned stimulus is present om severaltrails without the UCS also being present tyhe association between the two weakens and eventually the CR will be unpresent…
