Non-associative learning: learning following repeated exposure to a single stimulus or event, simplest, most basic form of learning, two types: habituation and sensitization. Sensitization: sensitization a form of non-associative learning whereby a strong stimulus results in an exaggerated response to the subsequent presentation of weaker stimuli, causes an increase rather than a decrease in response for learning. If something happens you can be more on edge and than something else may make you feel a sense. Associative learning: occurs when two things are linked together (you make the connections. 3between the two stimulus: two major types: classical conditioning and operant. Classical conditioning: conditioning the association of events in the environment (ex. Can opener associated with getting fed: classical conditioning a form of associative learning between two previously unrelated stimuli that results in a learned response, natural reflex an automatic involuntary response that typically occurs.
