Today, we will look at the different types of conditioning, stimulus and responses.
As you watch Pavlov’s experiments, think of :
- Neutral stimulus (NS)
- Unconditional stimulus (UCS)
- Unconditional response (UCR)
- Conditioned stimulus (SC)
- Conditioned response (CR)
Theory into practice:
Fear and conditioning
Remember Little Albert? How was fear conditioned and what types of stimulus and responses did you notice in the experiment?
Exercise: Think of one of your own fears.
For one specific fear that you have, list the UCS, UCR, CS, CR.
We will discuss in our groups.
