Document Summary

How does this pertain to human behavior: what is learning? , learning is not just acquiring new behaviours, learning does not necessarily involve special training. Learning involves getting rid of unwanted behaivour ie. quitting smoking: what is learning? . Learning: an enduring change in the mechanisms of behavior involving specific stimuli and or responses that result from prior experience with similar stimuli and responses. Not just any kind of change- must retain that change. Touch stove 1, never touch again (not continue to touch) Must result from our experience from specific stimulus and response ie. stove=hot. No mention of conciousness=allows us to test learning on animals/machine: habituation, habituation: the progressive decrease in the vigor of an elicited behavior that may occur with repeated presentations of the eliciting stimulus. Problem with learning: consistantly being bombarded by stimulous, can"t respond to all of them. Mus learn what we can ignore and what we must react to this is calledhabituation.
