Document Summary

Learning process of acquiring through experience new information of behaviour. Consequences: association between a response and consequences is learned (operant conditioning) Acquisition: mental info that guides behaviour (cognitive learning) After repeat exposure to two stimuli occurring in sequence, we associate those stimuli with each other resulting in natural response stimulus now can be triggered by new, predictive stimulus. Learns repeat behaviour can cause desirable/ undesirable results (causing strengthening/ weakening of behaviour) Acquiring new behaviours and information mentally, rather than by direct experience. Occurs by: observing events and behaviour of others, using language to acquire info about event experienced by others. Higher-order conditioning: turning a neutral stimuli into conditioned stimuli. Association between neutral stimuli and unconditioned stimuli. Unconditioned stimuli gets triggered by conditioned stimuli. Association of neutral stimuli needs to repeatedly appear before unconditioned stimuli. After conditioned stimuli is conditioned then extinguished. Resting period might lead to a spontaneous recovery return of the conditioned response (despite lack of conditioning)
