Classical Conditioning Mechanisms
  1. Overshadowing
    1. Compound Stimulus = Weak CS and Strong CS-US pairing
      1. Weak CS= Weak or No CR
        1. Strong CS = CR
          1. We pay attention to what is most relevant
        2. Conditioned Inhibition
          1. Phase 1
            1. Excitatory CS elicits CR
              1. Inhibitory CS prevents CR
            2. Phase 2
              1. Pair CS+ and CS- together with no US
              2. Phase 3
                1. Present CS+
                  1. CS- elicits no CR
              3. Early Theoretical Perspectives
                1. Stimulus-Substitution
                  1. classical conditioning occurred because the conditioned stimulus became a substitute for the unconditioned stimulus by being paired closely together
                  2. Stimulus response
                    1. Theory is a concept in psychology that refers to the belief that behavior manifests as a result of the interplay between stimulus and response.
                    2. US-Preexposure
                      1. the interference paradigm in which acquisition of the conditioned response is retarded due to prior experience with the US
                        1. Similar to habituation. The US is important. Support for SS Theory.
                        2. US Devaluation
                          1. Similar to habituation. The US is important. Support for SS Theory.
                            1. devaluation in infant rats does not permanently change the animal’s original representation of the unconditioned stimulus, but instead may replace it temporarily with a conflicting representation.
                            2. Blocking
                              1. Equal presentation of T should elicit a CR T was redundant. Causes problems for SS Theory
                              2. Higher-order conditioning
                                1. Sensory preconditioning
                                  1. Differs from Higher-order conditioning in that the conditioned stimuli are associated before classical conditioning has occurred
                                    1. Like Higher-order conditioning, supports SR Theory
