  Classical conditioning - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The simplest form of classical conditioning is reminiscent of what Aristotle would have called the law of contiguity which states that: "When two things commonly occur together, the appearance of one will bring the other to mind." Classical conditioning focuses on reflexive behavior or involuntary behavior.
The relationship between the conditioned stimulus and conditioned response is known as the conditioned (or conditional) reflex.
In classical conditioning, when the unconditioned stimulus is repeatedly or strongly paired with a neutral stimulus the neutral stimulus becomes a conditioned stimulus and elicits a conditioned response.

 WowEssays.com - Discussion On Classical Conditioning As An Explanation Of Learning
One of the principles of classical conditioning is extinction.
Pavlov’s dog who was conditioned to salivate to the sound of a bell of one tone may well salivate to a similar sounding bell or a buzzer.
The conditioned response to a similar stimulus is not as strong as the response to the original stimulus; the less similar the weaker the response.

 Classical Conditioning Could Link Disorders and Brain Dysfunction, Researchers Suggest
In fact, classical conditioning is so well understood and so similar in animals and humans, it's ideal for studies trying to link human disorders to brain dysfunction, says Temple University psychologist Diana Woodruff-Pak, PhD, who has found a connection between conditioning and Alzheimer's disease.
After discussing their research, the two believed that classical conditioning might be an interesting paradigm with which to pursue the study of cognitive aging.
The conditioning paradigm they used was classical eye-blink conditioning: By pairing a tone with an air puff to the eye, participants unconsciously learn to blink when they hear the tone, even if it's not accompanied by the air puff.

 Classical Conditioning
The "classic" classical conditioning experiment conducted by Pavlov goes as follows: A dog is hooked to a mechanism that measures the amount that the dog salivates.
The fundamental difference is that the unconditioned response occurs as a result of the unconditioned stimulus, and the conditioned response occurs in response to the conditioned stimulus.
Given that the conditioned stimulus does precede the unconditioned stimulus, the general rule of thumb is that the shorter the latency the more likely it is that the conditioning will occur.

 Classical Conditioning   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Conditioning may occur even in the absence of a CS, this is called temporal conditioning, where the US presented alone at regular intervals and the CS is the time interval, itself.
When an organism is conditioned to a compound stimulus, consisting of a weak stimulus in combination with a salient one, in later testing of each stimulus alone, the organism does not respond to the weak one, but does to the salient stimulus.
The question here, is: "Is conditioning automatic and nonselective, or not?" Traditionally, classical conditioning was explained based upon stimulus substitution, the CS acquires the power of US by becoming a substitute for it.

 Features of Classical Conditioning
In trace conditioning one might assume that the very recent memory trace of the CS begins to be associated with the US and hence the UR gradually extends back, albeit weakly, to the actual occurrence of the CS.
The results clearly show that CS-US predictability is an important factor in determining the efficacy of conditioning - the more the experimental groups were shocked during no-tone intervals the less the tone could predict shock and the less their bar pressing was suppressed by the tone during the conditioned suppression test-phase of the experiment.
One attempt to reconcile this result with the second-order conditioning results is to suggest that it is not the UR which becomes associated with the CS, but rather, the motivational state which to which the UR is directed.

 Classical and Operant Conditioning in Psychology 101 at AllPsych Online
The bell and salivation are not naturally occurring; the dog was conditioned to respond to the bell.
Therefore, the bell is considered the conditioned stimulus (CS), and the salivation to the bell, the conditioned response (CR).
The classic study of Operant Conditioning involved a cat who was placed in a box with only one way out; a specific area of the box had to be pressed in order for the door to open.

Examples of unconditioned stimuli and responses are: pain and jerking away, a puff of air to the eye and a blink, approaching danger and fear, light and pupil constriction.
In fact, classical conditioning is involved in almost everything we do (even though brushing your teeth isn't the emotional high point of your day, notice how you feel if you don't brush your teeth at the regular time).

Classical Conditioning basically results from the association of two stimuli inthe environment that work together to create an unconditioned response.
This may be confusing that one minute the salivation is the unconditionedresponse, and the next it is the conditioned response.
The salivation is turnedinto the conditioned response when it is activated by a once neutral stimulus,such as the bell.

The most common examples of classical conditioning seen in the educational environment are in situations where students exhibit phobias and anxieties, like "math anxiety," fear of failure, and general school phobia.
The effect of stimulus generalization is to transfer or "spread" the conditioned response to new stimuli.
For example, Pavlov's dogs could be trained to differentiate their response to two bell tones -- the higher pitched tone being associated with the arrival of food (thus: salivation) and the lower tone not associated with food.

From molecules to behavior - the simple concept of classical conditioning has lead to an overwhelmingly successful multi-level approach to investigate into the mechanisms of learning.

 Recent Research on Conditioning - Psychological Self-Help
In fact, the connection between the conditioned stimulus or CS (tone or rat) and the unconditioned stimulus or UCS (food or loud noise) must make sense and be useful, otherwise an animal or human won't learn that connection.
The classically conditioned stimuli (tone) must truly predict the unconditioned stimuli (food), thus helping the animal be forewarned and to adapt, before the animal will learn the connection.
Again, conditioning is not a blind, mechanical pairing process, it is a very adaptive response of the body for survival (Leahey and Harris, 1989).

 BehavioristHistory
The later "Operant Conditioning" school noted that in addition to a stimulus spurring a response, it was also important to attend to the consequence that followed the response.
Classical conditioning can not explain all of human behavior: some behaviors are developmental in nature (e.g., babbling in infants), and higher level cognitive thought can often overrule the machine-like reflex responses that have been previously built.
Lovass is known as the "father" of applied behavior analysis (ABA), the behaviorist procedures that involve the systematic environmental modifications used to understand and change the behaviors of humans.
