  3. Occurs when we make a connection, or an association. between two events.
    Associative learning
  4. The process of learning these associations
  5. In____________, organisms learn the association between two stimuli.
    classical conditioning
  6. As a result of this association, organisms learn to ____________ events.
  7. In operant conditioning, organisms learn the association between a ___________ and a _____, such as a reward.
    behavior / consequence
  8. A stimulus that produces a response without prior learning
    Unconditioned stimulus
  9. An unlearned reaction that is automatically elicited by the UCS.
    unconditioned response (UCR)
  10. In classical conditioning, a conditioned stimulus (CS) is a previously neutral stimulus that eventually elicits a_________ after being paired with the________________.
    conditioned response / unconditioned stimulus
  11. The conditioned response (CR) is the learned response to the conditioned stimulus that occurs after
    CS-UCS pairing
  12. ___ is the initial learning of the connection between the UCS and CS when these two stimuli are paired
  13. Means that the CS and UCS are presented very close together in time
  14. Means the CS must procede UCS closely in time, must also be a reliable indicator that UCS is on its way
  15. In classical conditioning, the tendency of a new stimulus that is similar to the original CS to elicit a response similar to CR
  16. In classical conditioning, learning to respond to certain stimuli and not others
  17. In classical conditioning, weakening of the CR when UCS is absent
  18. Process in classical conditioning by which CR can recur after a time delay, without further conditioning
    Spontaneous recovery
  19. Recovery of the conditioned response when the organism is placed in a novel context
  20. Classical conditioning procedure for changing the relationship between a CS & its CR
  21. Method of therapy that treats anxiety by teaching the client to associate deep relaxation with increasingly intense anxiety-producing situations
    Systematic desensitization
  22. Form of treatment that consists of repeated pairings of a stimulus with a very unpleasant stimuli
    Aversive conditioning
  23. Classical conditioning can produce____, a decrease in the production of antibodies
