What is the basic process of classical conditioning?

Basic Principles of Classical Conditioning. Classical conditioning is a form of learning whereby a conditioned stimulus (CS) becomes associated with an unrelated unconditioned stimulus (US) in order to produce a behavioral response known as a conditioned response (CR).

Herein, what is the process of conditioning?

Conditioning, in physiology, a behavioral process whereby a response becomes more frequent or more predictable in a given environment as a result of reinforcement, with reinforcement typically being a stimulus or reward for a desired response. They are based on the assumption that human behaviour is learned.

How does classical conditioning occur?

Classical conditioning occurs when a conditioned stimulus (CS) is paired with an unconditioned stimulus (US). After pairing is repeated (some learning may occur after only one pairing), the organism exhibits a conditioned response (CR) to the conditioned stimulus when the conditioned stimulus is presented alone.

What happens in classical conditioning?

During this stage a stimulus which produces no response (i.e., neutral) is associated with the unconditioned stimulus at which point it now becomes known as the conditioned stimulus (CS). For example, a stomach virus (UCS) might be associated with eating a certain food such as chocolate (CS).
