A type of learning which requires two stimuli to associate with one another.
ex. Every time someone flushes a toilet in the apartment building, the shower becomes very hot and causes the person to jump back. Over time, the person begins to jump back automatically after hearing the flush, before the water temperature changes.
This example is classical conditioning because jumping away from hot water is an automatic response.
The hot water is the US
The jumping back is the UR
The toilet flush is the CS
The jumping back to the flush alone is the CR
neutral stimulus and the unconditioned stimulus paired together at the same time.

conditioning when there is no temporal overlap between the conditioning stimulus and the unconditioned stimulus.

the conditioned stimulus is presented before the unconditioned stimulus and it (CS) stays on until the US is presented. This is generally the best, especially when the delay is short.
