Tendency of an extinguished conditioned response to return when revisiting the original conditioning environment:
Take away something bad to increase the probability of a response:
Decreasing the probability of a response:
Initially neutral stimulus becomes associated with the unconditioned stimulus through conditioning:
A less frequently performed behavior can be increased by reinforcing it with a more frequent behavior:
Decline in the magnitude of a reflexive response when the stimulus is repeated several times in succession:
Gradual decrease and elimination of the conditioned response when the conditioned stimulus is presented repeatedly without the unconditioned response:
Increasing the probability of a response:
Founding Father of classical conditioning studied:
Any process through which experience at one time can alter an individual’s behavior at a future time:
Learning that isn’t directly observable:
Unpleasant stimulus is given to decrease the probability of a response:
Biologically significant stimulus that produces an automatic response:
Pattern of reinforcing a behavior:
Behaviors that we reinforce only occasionally are slower to extinguish than those we reinforce continuously:

Learned response:
