controlled by their consequences
operant behaviors
involves manipulation of consquences
operant conditioning
involves manipulation of antecedent stimuli
occurs when a previously neutral stimulus is paired with a US as a result of the pairing the neutral stimulus becomes a conditioned stimulus (CS) + elicits a CR similar to the UR
respondant conditioning
respnses elicited by an antecedent stimuli even though no conditioning or learning has taken place
unconditioned responses
UR occurs in all healthy people when the __ is presented
Uncondtioned stimulus
the Neutral stimulus (NS) is presented and the US is presented before the NS ends
delay conditioning
similar to delay cond. in that the NS precedes the US but in this case the NS ends before theUS is presented
trace conditioning
NS and US are presented at the same time
simultaneous conditioning
the US presented before the NS
backward conditioning
correct behavior occurs at the right time wo assistance (prompts)
transfer stimulus control
complex chain of behaviors presented as a single unit
total task presentation
identifying variables before treating a problem behavior
functional assessment
