Best Answer

The unconditioned stimulus becomes the conditioned stimulus. Classic example is Pavlov and his dogs who begin to salivate at the sound of a bell. The bell (unconditioned) is paired with giving the dogs meat powder. The bell (conditioned) activates the dogs salivary glands when it is rung after conditioning.

When can a conditioned response be extinguished?

a conditioned stimulus is no longer followed by an unconditioned stimulus.


How are the strongest associations between the conditioned stimulus and the unconditioned stimulus formed?

The strongest association is formed when we present the conditioned stimulus about half a second before the unconditioned stimulus.


What is the purpose of classical condition?

The purpose it to associate an unconditioned stimulus (ex: sound of a bell) to a conditioned stimulus (ex: food) in order to get a conditioned response (ex: salivation) every time the subject being conditioned is exposed to the unconditioned stimulus (ex: sound of a bell creates salivation).


In a classical conditioning procedure the pairing of the conditioned stimulus and the unconditioned stimulus will result in?

A+ all answers are correct :]]]]


Pavlov's Classical Conditioning-definition?

Ivan Pavlov was a pioneer of classical conditioning. Classical conditioning is a form of associative learning in which a conditioned stimulus is presented along with a stimulus that leads to a certain response. The conditioned or neutral stimulus does not in and of itself result in a specific behavioral response. An example of a conditioned stimulus would be a bell as in Pavlov's famous experiment. An unconditioned stimulus is a stimulus that naturally and in and of itself leads to a certain response; i.e. unconditioned response. The unconditioned stiumulus would be the meat in Pavlov's experiment. In addition, the unconditioned response would be the salivation of the dog. The gist of the experiment was that the dog salivated when the bell rang because ringing the bell was associated with food. After the pairing of the bell and salivation take place now we have achieved a conditioned response, namely the act of salivation. In other words, the neutral stimulus (bell) became a conditioned stimulus as it was paired with an unconditioned stimulus (meat) leading to a conditioned response (salivation).

Example of unconditioned stimulus?

Unconditioned Stimulus is an event or thing that automatically triggers a response. an example would be. when you smell your favorite food cooking, your mouth may salivate. the smell is an unconditioned stimulus which, in turn, brings rise to the salivating (unconditioned or conditioned response).


What response is caused by a neutral stimulus?

The neutral stimulus does not cause any response. It is paired with the Unconditioned Stimulus until it is turned into the Conditioned Stimulus.
