  2. An animal ignores a stimulus to which it is continually subjected. This is a behavior known as
  3. In ___________ the animal modifies its behavior by linking an involuntary response to a specific natural stimulus to a new stimulus.

  6. A response an animal develops to a stimulus as a result of pleasant experiences occurring each time the stimulus is received is a kind of learning called

  7. ___________ or imitation is a form of associative learning that involves a complex set of associations involved in watching another animal being rewarded for performing a particular behavior and then performing that same behavior oneself.
    Observational learning
  8. A dog jumps through a hoop. He is rewarded with a dog biscuit. Thereafter he readily jumps through the hoop as long as he is rewarded. This is an example of
  9. Learning a specific behavior that occurs in animals that are genetically primed to learn a specific behavior in a very short period is termed
  10. Behavior in which an individual animal gives up an advantage or puts itself in danger to aid others is called
