Term:Conditioned Response
Definition (Myers):in classical conditioning, the learned response to a previously neutral conditioned stimulus (2)
Definition (alternative): A conditioned response in Pavlovian conditioning is the response that the conditioned stimulus elicits after it has been repeatedly paired with an unconditioned stimulus. The conditioned response may be similar in form to the unconditioned response. For example, the eye blink to the tone conditioned stimulus may involve the same bodily musculature as the eye blink to the puff of air to the cornea. What is a conditioned response?(1)
Contextual explanation: A conditioned response is a learned behavior. For example, a dog that is continuously exposed to bell sound before getting its meals, the dog will associate bell sound with its meals. Therefore, the dog's salivation becomes its conditioned response.
