Classical conditioning: Generalization, discrimination, extinction, and spontaneous recovery

  1. 1. CLASSICAL CONDITIONING Factors that affect conditioning  Generalization—when a stimulus similar to the CS (higher pitched bell) also elicits the CR (salivation), even if it has never been paired with the UCS (food)Image credit: Pearson Scott Foresman
  2. 2. CLASSICAL CONDITIONING Factors that affect conditioning  Discrimination—when a CR (salivation) is made to one stimulus (higher pitched bell) but not to another similar stimulus (lower pitched bell)
  3. 3. CLASSICAL CONDITIONING Factors that affect conditioning  Extinction—the decline and eventual disappearance of the CR (salivation); occurs by repeatedly presenting the CS (bell) in the absence of the UCS (food)  You can think of it as weakening/ breaking the association
  4. 4. CLASSICAL CONDITIONING Factors that affect conditioning  Spontaneous recovery  Reappearance of an extinct CR (salivation) after a period of time with no exposure to the CS (bell)Figure credit: Hockenbury, D.H. & Hockenbury, S.E.
