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