Classical Conditioning 

 

Uncontrolled stimulus - Uncontrolled Response 

Uncontrolled Stimulus + Netural Stimulus - Uncontrolled Response 

Controlled Stimulus - Controlled Repsonse

Extinction: When the Controlled Response is not produced as a result of the Controlled Stimulus. It happens when the Controlled Stimulus is repeatedly presented without the UCS following it.
