Observational Learning A.) Classic Conditioning (Pavlov) 1.) Unconditioned Response (UR or UCR) - A response that is automatic or reflexive - It is involuntary, response that you don’t have control of Ex. You are hit in the eye = your eye bleeds  Involuntary. Someone scares you = you jump  Involuntary. 2.) Unconditioned Stimulus (US) - A stimulus that elicits (triggers) the unconditioned response (UR/UCR) 3.) Conditioned Stimulus (CS) - Any stimulus that’s paired with the unconditioned stimulus (US) and eventually elicits a response that is similar to the unconditioned response (UR/UCR) 4.) Conditioned Response (CR) - The response triggered by the conditioned stimulus (CS) and it is identical to the unconditioned response (UR/UCR) Example (Triggers)(+Stimuli presented roughly at the same time) Dog salivates on the sight of food, while a bell is ringing. Food= Salivation. UR= Salivation, US= Food, CS= Bell Bell + Food, BellSalivation. Bell used to be neutral, but after being associated with food, the dog would respond by salivating. Bell (CS) Salivation (CR). Family gatheringUncle approaches you and says hi while hitting/punching you You flinch. (US) Slap  Flinch (UR) Hello + Slap = (CS) Slap  Flinch (CR) Advertisers believe that they can use classical conditioning to get consumers to buy their product(s).
