Learning is a relatively permanent change in people"s behavior and thought process. Behavioral learning forms of learning that can be described in terms of stimuli and responses. A causes c and b can also cause c. Basic features of classical conditioning: unconditioned stimulus something that naturally causes our unconditioned response. Someone plays music (stimulus) and you start to bob your head or dance (response: unconditioned response caused by a stimulus. A reflex: conditioned stimulus a stimulus that was previously neutral (didn"t cause a response) that causes a conditioned response, conditioned response a learned response. Pavlov dog experiment: food = unconditioned stimulus. Causes salivation: bell alone = no response. Neutral stimulus: paired the food and bell = creates a conditioned response. Creates a response through association: bell alone = conditioned response. Unconditioned stimulus and conditioned stimulus: child spanked with a belt. Applications of classical conditioning: conditioned food aversions.
