Instrumental conditioning, like classical (Pavlovian) conditioning, shows discrimination. In instrumental conditioning, discriminative stimuli serve as signals for when a response will earn a reinforcement and when it won't. In the simplest form of discrimination, a positive signal, S, indicates that the trained response will earn reinforcement. psychology discrimination classical conditioning
In classical conditioning, discrimination is the ability to differentiate between a conditioned stimulus and other stimuli that have not been paired with an unconditioned stimulus. For example, if a bell tone were the conditioned stimulus, discrimination would involve being able to tell the difference between the bell sound and other similar sounds. In classical conditioning, discrimination occurs when one stimulus triggers a conditional response but another does not. To set up discrimination in the laboratory, a researcher creates a situation in which two stimuli predict different things. Classical conditioning is a type of learning that had a major influence on the school of thought in psychology known as behaviorism. Discovered by Russian physiologist Ivan Pavlov, classical conditioning is a learning process that occurs through associations between an environmental stimulus and a naturally occurring stimulus. psychology discrimination classical conditioning Discrimination. Discrimination is a term that is used in both classical and operant conditioning. In classical conditioning, it refers to an ability to distinguish between a conditioned stimulus (CS) and other, similar stimuli that don't signal an unconditioned stimulus (US).
