Classical and Operant Conditioning Differences • One is reflexive, one is learned • Reflexes are needed in CC • CC there is no consequence, stimulus and behaviour only • In OC you need a consequence to drive the rest • CC automatically elicited • OC are not automatically elicited • OC is instrumental in coping with external events • Both are learning but you learn different things • In CC learn to associate NS as a CS • OC create new behaviours and becoming sensitive to the behaviours that come before the behaviours Interactions 1. CC is often a “side-effect” of O/C 2. A CS (from CC) can become an S R 3. CC can interfere with performing behaviours in O/C 4. Reflexes can be disrupted by O/C 5. Reflexes can be modified by O/C 6. Often when you have OC you will have CC as a side effect 1. Ex: A = person going into kitchen 2. B = cat going in the kitchen 3. C= cat getting food 4. CC = person going in the kitchen elicits excitement from the cat 5. 4. learn to look calm when someone is robbing you 7. When you touch something really hot you automatically pull your hand away but you if are holding someones fine china and it spills on you you don’t throw it on the floor Stimulus Collage • Some stimuli will be affecting the behaviour and some wont • Stimulis in this class: • Lights • Professor • Projector • Classmates • Sound of vents, typing, etc • Computers • Temperature • Hunger, fatigue, thoughts • Stimuli that effects our behaviours can be outside the body and inside the body • Kinds of antecedents: SD, Sdelta, US, CS, NS • Temperature can be a US for making you sweat • It is also an SD for making you take of your jacket • Sdelta for putting on more clothes • Hunger could be an SD to go get food • Could be an Sdelta for not going to class or not listening in class • Alcohol • SD for acting outgoing • Sdelta for driving • Too much can be US
