A relatively permanent change in behavior as a result of experience is the definition of
learning
Psychologists define learning as
a relatively permanent change in behavior due to experience
This would be considered false regarding to learning
learning includes temporary changes as well as changes due to motivation and fatigue
Whenever a person or animal forms a simple connection among various stimuli and/or responses, this occurs
associative learning
Associative learning occurs whenever a person or an animal forms a simple connection among various
stimuli and responses
Forming a connection between the stimulus of a dog growling at you and the response of fear would be a type of _____________ learning
associative
Forming a connection between the stimulus of seeing a particular food and the response of feeling nauseous would be type of ______________ learning

Larry's fear of rats developed through a form of associative learning called
vicarious classical conditioning
the type of learning to help Larry overcome his irrational fear of rats is

Learning from written language is considered a complex form of associative learning
Unlike associative learning, this type of learning consists of understanding, knowing, anticipating and making use of information-rich higher mental processes
cognitive learning
Unlike associative learning, cognitive learning involves
making use of information-rich higher mental processes
if you were making use of information-rich higher mental processes, such as organizing various research articles in writing your term paper, you are engaged in a complex form of
cognitive learning
Learning from written language is unique to human and is a more complex form of
cognitive learning
This abstract "book learning" that Larry attempted to use to conquer his fear would be considered a form of
cognitive learning
this type of learning was a fairly mechanical process of "stamping in" connections between objective stimuli and objective responses with no subjective "thinking" believed to be required
associative learning
Classical conditioning and operand conditioning are two types of _______________ learning
associative
The two types of associative learning are
classical conditioning and operant conditoning
In Russia, Ivan Pavlov discovered ____________________________ conditioning
classical
Regarding associative learning, this person discovered classical conditioning
Ivan Pavlov
In North America, Edward Thorndike discovered what is today called ______________________ Conditioning
Operant
Regarding associative learning, this person discovered what is now called Operant conditioning
