What type of stimulus elicits a response?

Unconditioned stimulus

Is the disappearance or weakening of a learned response?

Psychology, Ch 5, Learning Vocab

Extinction (Operant Conditioning) In operant conditioning, the disappearance or weakening of a learned response following the removal of a reinforcer

Is the gradual disappearance of a learned response?

Extinction is the gradual weakening and disappearance of a conditioned response. Spontaneous recovery is the reappearance of an extinguished conditioned response when the conditioned stimulus returns after a period of absence.

Is learning a change in behavior?

Learning, like reflexes and instincts, allows an organism to adapt to its environment. But unlike instincts and reflexes, learned behaviors involve change and experience: learning is a relatively permanent change in behavior or knowledge that results from experience.

Why is a temporary change in Behaviour not considered learning?

In order for learning to occur, the change that takes place must be relatively permanent. So changes in behavior that result from fatigue or temporary adaptation to a unique situation would not be considered examples of learning. Finally, learning is an inferred process; we cannot observe learning directly.

What types of behaviors would not be considered learning?

Instincts and reflexes are innate behaviors—they occur naturally and do not involve learning.

Which of the following is an example of a respondent behavior?

Functions of respondent behavior include protecting the body against harmful stimuli, regulating the internal balance and economy of the organism, and promoting reproduction. Other examples of human respondent behaviors are sexual arousal and sweating while running.

What are the three distinct types of learning?

Everyone processes and learns new information in different ways. There are three main cognitive learning styles: visual, auditory, and kinesthetic. The common characteristics of each learning style listed below can help you understand how you learn and what methods of learning best fits you.

How many types of learning are there?

It is an acronym that refers to the four learning styles: visual, auditory, reading/writing preference, and kinesthetic. VARK is focused on the idea that students retain and process information differently and have “preferred learning modes” that allow them to learn their best.

What is VARK learning?

VARK is an acronym that refers to the four types of learning styles: Visual, Auditory, Reading/Writing Preference, and Kinesthetic. ( The VARK model is also referred to as the VAK model, eliminating Reading/Writing as a category of preferential learning.)

What is the purpose of VARK?

VARK is a questionnaire that helps your learning by suggesting the strategies you should be using. People with a strong visual preference for learning like: different formats, space, graphs, charts, diagrams, maps and plans.

What are the three learning styles of purposive communication?

The three identified learning styles are: Visual, Auditory and Kinesthetic.
