Once you get used to the stimulus, you get used to it. You learn better first, later on, you just fine tune your skills 2) Output measure: in the start, you don’t present much, but later on in life, and its still negatively accelerated. Faster flattening out, better you learn Temporal Contiguity 1) Forward pairing CS is presented before the UCS 2) Simultaneous pairing: presenting UCS and CS at the same time 3) Backward pairing: presenting the CS AFTER the UCS. Which one is the best? Forward pairing. This is because it serves as a cue. Interval should be 0.5 seconds. Higher – order conditioning - Pair primary CS with another neutral stimulus (secondary CS) - Not very effective… CS-UCS bond is no longer reinforced - The CR extinguishes Higher order conditioning DOES NOT work classical model In Exctinction - CS no longer paired with UCS - Decrease in response strength - CS loses cue Value. Stronger the CS, it takes longer to forget it Note: 1) Index of strength 2) CS-UCS bond not unlearned “savings” & spontaneous recovery Generalization - Degree of resp
