Chapter 1: Physio Psych
What is Learning?
o Learning:
Acquiring knowledge or developing the ability to perform new behaviors
Proess of hage that ours as a result of a orgais’s eperiee
Change is the focus and need to survival
The ability to modify behavior to suit demands of environment is
key
Process- events that change behavior
Product- long-term changes in behavior
Learning is closely related to memory, which is the storage of information
in the brain
o Many forms of learning, ranging from simple to complex
Simple forms of learning involve a single stimulus
A stimulus is anything perceptible to the senses, such as sight, sound,
smell, touch, or taste
Pavlovian conditioning- (classical conditioning) people learn to associate
two stimuli that occur in sequence
eg. Lighting followed by thunder
Event-event learning- describes one type of associative learning in
which there is no contingency between response and reinforce
Organism reacts to stimulus with a reflex
o Eg. Loud noise flinch
Then, a neutral stimulus is paired with a stimulus that evokes the
reflex
o Eg. Lie podium loud noise flinch
Organism associates the two simuli
o Eg. Lie podium and noise
Neutral stimulus eventually comes to evoke the reflex

o Eg. Lie podium flinch
Operant/Instrumental conditioning- people learn by forming an
association between a behavior and its consequences
Reward or punishment
Describes one type of associative learning in which there is a
contingency between the response and the presentation of the
reinforcer
o We learn to associate a response and its consequence
Other learning- people and animals can also learn by observation
By watching others perform behaviors
More complex forms of learning include learning languages,
concepts, and motor skills
o Methodological aspects of the study of learning
Scientific method
State the problem
Research the problem
Form a hypothesis
o Refers to a statement of cause and effect
Eg. eposure to arijuaa ireases appetite
Test the problem
o Experiment
An experiment involves a set of controlled
conditions that aims to confirm a hypothesis
o Experimental variables
To test a hypothesis, and experimenter defines the
variable of the hypothesis:
Cause: Independent Variable (IV)
o Eg. Marijuana: plain cigarette
containing 5 mg THC
