process of observing and imitating a specific behavior
learning by watching others and then imitating it
reinforces a response after an unpredicitible number of responses
reinforcing the desired response every time it occurs
type of learning in which a behavior is strengthened if followed by a reinforcer of diminished if followed by a punisher
reinforcing the a response only part of the time
initial stage of learning when one links the neutral stimulus and unconiditioned stimulus so neutral stimulus triggers the conditioned response
a desire to preform a behavior effectively for its own sake
increasing behaviors by presenting stimuli
reinforces a response after a specified time has elapsed
sudden, often novel realization of the solution to a problem
reinforces a response at unpredicited times
positive, constructive, helpful behavior
learning that occurs but is not apparent until there is an incentive to demonstrate it
Pavlovian type of learning where one links 2 or more stimuli and anticipates events
increasing behavior by stopping/reducing stimuli
learned ability to distinguish between a CS and stimuli that do not signal an US
decreasing a behavior by adding stimuli
the reappearance after a pause of an extinguished CR
hopelessness/passive resignation one learns when unable to avoid repeated adversive events
event that decreases the behavior it follows
reinforces a response after a specified number of responses
decreasing a behavior by removing stimuli
relatively permanent change in an organism's behavior due to experience
procedure in which reinforcers guide behavior toward a desired behavior using successive approximations
behavior followed by favorable consequences becomes more likely, behavior followed by negative consequences becomes less likely
branch of psychology, think it should be object science and study behavior with no reference to mental processes
the tendency, once a response has been conditioned, for stimuli similar to the CS to elicit similar responses
a stimulus that elicits a response after association with a reinforcement (in contrast to related stimuli not assocated with reinforcement)
contains bar/key an animal can manipulate to obtain food/water reinforcer
a desire to preform a behavior to receive rewards or avoid punishment
similar that unconditionally triggers a response
learned response to previously neutral stimulus
when presenting a reinforcement for a behavior decreases the intrinsic motivation to do it
diminishing of conditioned response when US doesn't follow CS
behavior that operates on the environment, producing consequences
procedure where CS is paired with a new neutral stimulus, creating a second (weaker) CS
unlearned, naturally occurring response
organism's decreasing response to a stimulus with repeated exposure to it
learning that certain events occur together
a mental representation of the layout of one's environment
frontal lobe neurons that fire when preforming certain actions or when observing another doing so
behavior that occurs as an automatic response to some stimulus
originally irrelevant stimulus that, after association, comes to tigger a conditioned response
an innately reinforcing stimulus, such as one that satisfies a biological need
stimulus that gains its power of reinforcement through its association with a primary reinforcer
in operant conditioning, any event that strengthens the behavior that follows it
