3 Learning Long lasting change in behavior due to experience.


5 How do we learn? Most learning is associative learning Learning that certain events occur together. *Number Code Activity

6 Three Main Types of Learning 3-Observational Learning 1-Classical Conditioning 2-Operant Conditioning

7 Classical Conditioning It all started with: Ivan Pavlov from 5:00-9:00


9 Unconditioned Stimulus (UCS): a stimulus that naturally and automatically triggers a response. Unconditional Response (UCR): the unlearned, naturally occurring response to the UCS.

10 Conditioned Response (CR): the learned response to a previously neutral stimulus. Conditioned Stimulus (CS): an originally irrelevant stimulus that, after association with the UCS, comes to trigger a response.


12 Classical Conditioning TRICKY FACT: We know learning exists because the CS is linked to the UCS. This is called ACQUISITION. Acquisition does not last forever. The moment the CS is no longer associated with the UCS, we have EXTINCTION.



15 See if you can identify the UCS, UCR, CS and CR? Popular Example of Classical Conditioning

16 Come up with your own examples of Classical Conditioning

17 You can classically condition your roommate

18 Pavlov spent the rest of his life outlining his ideas. He came up with 5 critical terms that together make up classical conditioning. Acquisition Extinction Spontaneous Recovery Generalization Discrimination

19 Spontaneous Recovery The reappearance, after a rest period, of an extinguished conditioned response.

20 Generalization and Discrimination Generalization Something is so similar to the CS that you get a CR. Discrimination Something so different to the CS so you do not get a CR.

21 Classical Conditioning and Humans John Watson brought Classical Conditioning to psychology with his Baby Albert experiment. 13:05-15:30 Baby Albert clip
