DefinitionTerm
creates a graphic record of responding and reinforcement in a Skinner box as a function of time
in classical conditioning, consists of any presentation of a stimulus or pair of stimuli
refers to the initial stage of learning something
the reappearance of an extinguished response after a period of nonexposure to the conditioned stimulus
the reinforcement of closer and closer approximations of a desired response
when a conditioned stimulus functions as if it were an unconditioned stimulus
the reinforcer is given after a fixed number of nonreinforced responses
cues that influence operant behavior by indicating the probable consequences (reinforcement or nonreinforcement) of a response
learning that is not apparent from behavior when it first occurs
occurs when an event following a response increases an organism's tendency to make that response
occurs when an organism acquires a response that prevents some aversive stimulation from occurring
occurs when an organism that has learned a response to a specific stimulus does not respond in the same way to new stimuli that are similar to the original stimulus
events that acquire reinforcing qualities by being associated with primary reinforcers
occurs when an organism that has learned a response to a specific stimulus responds in the same way to new stimuli that are similar to the original stimulus
an unlearned reaction to an unconditioned stimulus that occurs without previous conditioning
a form of learning in which voluntary responses come to be controlled by their consequences
the reinforcer is given for the first response that occurs after a fixed time interval has elapsed
a specific pattern of presentation of reinforcers over time
events that are inherently reinforcing because the satisfy biological needs
DefinitionTerm
any relatively durable change in behavior or knowledge that is due to experience
occurs when a response is strengthened because it is followed by the removal of an aversive (unpleasant) stimulus
occurs when an event following a response weakens the tendency to make that response
the circumstances or rules that determine whether responses lead to the presentation of reinforcers
a stimulus that evokes an unconditioned resoinse without previous conditioning
a type of learning in which a stimulus acquires the capacity to evoke a response that was originially evoked by another stimulus
occurs when every instance of a designated response is reinforced
occurs when an organism continues to make a response after delivery of the reinforcer for it has been terminated
a small enclosure in which an animal can make a specific response that is systematically recorded while the consequences of the repsonse are controlled
the reinforcer is given for the first response after a variable time interval has elapsed; the interval length varies around a predetermined avrage
occurs when an organism's responding is influenced by the observation of others, who are called models
a previously neutral stimulus that has, through conditioning, acquired the capacity to evoke a conditioned response
a learned reaction to a conditioned stimulus that occurs because of previous conditioning
occurs when an organism acquires a response that decreases or ends some aversive stimulation
occurs when a response is strengthed because it is followed by the presentation of a rewarding stimulus
occurs when a designated reponse is reinforced only some of the time
the reinforcer is given after a variable number of nonreinforced responses
the gradual weakening and disappearance of a conditioned response tendency
