behavior followed by favorable consequences becomes more likely, behavior followed by negative consequences becomes less likely
unlearned, naturally occurring response
a stimulus that elicits a response after association with a reinforcement (in contrast to related stimuli not assocated with reinforcement)
reinforces a response after an unpredicitible number of responses
diminishing of conditioned response when US doesn't follow CS
a mental representation of the layout of one's environment
the tendency, once a response has been conditioned, for stimuli similar to the CS to elicit similar responses
learned ability to distinguish between a CS and stimuli that do not signal an US
process of observing and imitating a specific behavior
increasing behaviors by presenting stimuli
when presenting a reinforcement for a behavior decreases the intrinsic motivation to do it
hopelessness/passive resignation one learns when unable to avoid repeated adversive events
behavior that occurs as an automatic response to some stimulus
behavior that operates on the environment, producing consequences
procedure in which reinforcers guide behavior toward a desired behavior using successive approximations
reinforces a response at unpredicited times
learning by watching others and then imitating it
type of learning in which a behavior is strengthened if followed by a reinforcer of diminished if followed by a punisher
stimulus that gains its power of reinforcement through its association with a primary reinforcer
event that decreases the behavior it follows
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
learning that occurs but is not apparent until there is an incentive to demonstrate it

a desire to preform a behavior effectively for its own sake
positive, constructive, helpful behavior
originally irrelevant stimulus that, after association, comes to tigger a conditioned response
reinforcing the desired response every time it occurs
decreasing a behavior by adding stimuli
organism's decreasing response to a stimulus with repeated exposure to it
Pavlovian type of learning where one links 2 or more stimuli and anticipates events
frontal lobe neurons that fire when preforming certain actions or when observing another doing so
procedure where CS is paired with a new neutral stimulus, creating a second (weaker) CS
branch of psychology, think it should be object science and study behavior with no reference to mental processes
