Other questions in this quiz

2. Which of these describes the process of discrimination in classical conditioning?

  • Remembering an extinguished association without more learning trials
  • Applying a conditioned response to similar stimulus
  • Applying a conditioned response to some stimulus but not others
  • Weakening a conditioned response due to lack of UCS pairing (learnt inhibition)

3. Which of these cognitive behaviours increases strength of conditioning?

  • Expectancy of CS to predict UCS
  • Blocking due to prior association
  • Latent inhibition due to prior exposure to NS
  • Paying strong attention to an association and then later being exposed to stimulus paired in another association.

4. Which of these facts about learning and the brain is NOT true?

  • Stimulation from environment increases brain weight, dendrites, neurotransmitters and synapses.
  • Learning affects the brain for example reduces activity in frontal lobe to create automatic responses.
  • Learning is controlled by the hypothalamus
  • Consolidation helps improve skills learnt without practice

5. Which of these does NOT describe a feature of classical conditioning?

  • Works best using backward pairing = Presenting the neutral stimulus after the unconditioned stimulus
  • Association of two stimulus resulting in the neutral stimulus producing the same response as the first.
  • Higher order conditioning = Conditioning of a neutral stimulus by pairing with an already conditioned stimulus
  • Works best under repeated pairings, intense stimulus and short time intervals
