Sample text

The consequences the model received for these acts were different in the three films: The model either received punishment, rewards, or no consequences for the acts. The children were then taken individually to a room that had a Bobo doll and the other objects they had seen in the film. They were told they could play with the toys in any way they wished, and no consequences were promised or threatened for their actions. As expected, they copied the model’s behavior, but the children who had observed the model being punished for aggression performed fewer of the model’s aggressive acts than the other children did.

Third, B. F. Skinner (1938) named and defined two types of behavior, operant and respondent; designed an apparatus called an operant chamber (or more commonly, the Skinner box) to study the role of reinforcement on behavior; studied in detail the effects of consequences on behavior; and published these contributions in The Behavior of Organisms, which became a highly influential work. Two important studies set the stage for applying learning principles to change behavior. In one of these studies, John Watson and Rosalie Rayner (1920) conditioned an 11-month-old boy they called Little Albert to fear a white rat.

Because you learned the name–salivation association, the learned stimulus (the food’s name) is called the conditioned stimulus (CS). Before conditioning, this stimulus was neutral—it didn’t produce that response. And since there was no food in your mouth (that is, there was no US) in our demonstration, the salivation elicited by the name of the food is called a conditioned response (CR). Notice that the UR and CR are essentially the same behavior: salivation. They are called respondent behaviors because they are elicited involuntarily by stimuli.
