The acquisition of new knowledge, skills, or responses from experience that results in a relatively permanent change in the state of the learner. A decrease in the strength or occurrence of a behavior due to repeated exposure to the stimulus that produces the behavior: getting sick of the food that you eat constantly eat. An increase in the strength or occurrence of a behavior due to exposure to an arousing, noxious, unpredictable stimulus. Conditioning in aplysia involves just a few neurons, as opposed to millions of neurons and complex brain systems in humans. A type of learning that occurs when a neutral stimulus produces a response after being paired with a stimulus that naturally produces a response. Us, ur, cs, cr, extinction, spontaneous recovery, temporal sequence, clinical issues (ptsd, phobias, drug tolerance), acquisition phase, second order conditioning. Us (unconditioned stimulus) something that reliably produces a naturally occurring reaction in an organism.
