Classical and Operant Conditioning - Thinking and Feeling

classical conditioning behvavior that occurs as an automatic response to a stimulus - respondent behavior
unconditioned stimulus (UCS) stimulus that automatically triggers a response - you don't need to be trained to react
unconditioned response (UCR) response that is automatically triggered and needs no training
neutral stimulus (NS) stimulus that orignially has nothing to do with a response
conditioned stimulus (CS) stimulus that used to be neutral, and have nothing to do with a response, but because it is paired with the UCS now it gets a response
conditioned response (CR) the learned reponse to a previously neutral stimulus
acquisition the initial stage in classical conditioning when you associate a neutral stimulus and get a response from it
extinction the diminishing or dying out of a response
spontaneous recovery the reappearance of a distinguished response
generalization when one gets the same response from a similar stimuli
discrimination when one distinguishes between similar stimuli
taste aversion as a result of classical conditioning, you have paired the stimulus with something unpleasant (ex: raw oysters w/ getting sick; eating them after the fact makes you feel ill)
