2. Which of these cognitive behaviours increases strength of conditioning?
- Latent inhibition due to prior exposure to NS
- Expectancy of CS to predict UCS
- Blocking due to prior association
- Paying strong attention to an association and then later being exposed to stimulus paired in another association.
3. Which of the following describes a true difference between classical and operant conditioning?
- Classical can involve discrimination but operant does not
- Classical is automatic elicited behaviours, operant is emitted chosen behaviours.
- Classical is caused by consequences and operant is caused by associations
- Classical does not involve extinction but operant does.
4. Which of these describes the process of discrimination in classical conditioning?
- Applying a conditioned response to some stimulus but not others
- Remembering an extinguished association without more learning trials
- Applying a conditioned response to similar stimulus
- Weakening a conditioned response due to lack of UCS pairing (learnt inhibition)
5. What is the difference between primary and secondary reinforcers?
- Primary satisfy emotional needs and secondary are associated with biological needs
- Primary satisfy biological needs and secondary create possible opportunity to satisfy biological need indirectly
- Primary are consequences we inflict on ourselves and secondary are consequences inflicted by others
- Primary satisfy biological needs and secondary satisfy emotional needs
