Description
Vivian Liang & Alen Xu Chapter 3 Review questions: 1. Which type of conditioning is most effective? a. Simultaneous b. Trace c. Delay d. Backward 2. Domjan and Wilson (1972) did an experiment where 2 groups of rats received saccharin solution. 1 group was given electric shock and the 2 group was given LiCl to induce gastric illness. When both groups are subsequently given a choice between water and saccharin, only the 2 group (given the LiCl) avoided the saccharin. Which factor of conditioning was applied? a. Similarity b. Causal relevance c. Salience of CS and US d. Temporal contiguity e. None of the above 3. Which of the following is NOT a result of pre-exposure? a. Retarded conditioning b. Latent inhibition c. Blocking d. Habituation e. None of the above 4. In one experiment, 1 group of rats received 66 initial conditioning trials with a tone and a weak shock before conditioning with a stronger shock in the second phase. A second group received conditioning with different shocks (weak and strong) in the two phases as in group 1, but in this group, the tone was not presented until the second phase. Given that this experiment followed the Pearce-Hall model, what would happen to the tone-shock association in phase 2? What about the value of ? a. Group 1 would learn the tone-shock association in phase 2 very quickly as the tone has already been established as an excellent predictor of shock in phase 1, therefore, would increase b. Group 1 would learn the tone-shock association in phase 2 very quickly as the tone has already been established as an excellent predictor of shock in phase 1, therefore, would decrease c. Conditioning of the tone in phase 1 caused slower learning of the tone in phase 2 because prior exposure to the CSs would result in the lack of attention to the CSs as they are already good predictors of the US, therefore, would increase d. Conditioning of the tone in phase 1 caused slower learning of the tone in phase 2 because prior exposure to t
