Fixed Action implies behavior that once started it will continue until completed. An example is swallowing.
True
False
22
1
Automatic response is one that is carried out by the nevous system through simple unconscious relfexes. An example is a heart beating.
True
False
23

Instincts are complex sets of multi-steped actions that are relatively inflexible and are performed correctly the first time. An example is a baby knowing how to nurse.
True
False

Habituation is a rapid and irreversible learning process that occurs at a critical development period.
Don't let me trick you. This is the definition for imprinting.
True
False
25
1
Imprinting occurs when an animal learns to ignore a repetitive stimulus.
Don't let me trick you. This is the definition for habituation
True
False

Imitation is when learning occurs by observing the behavior of others.
True
False
27

Associative Learning is a specific action associated with a consequence. There are 3 different types.
True
False
28
1
Classical conditioning is a process in which the likelihood of a specific behavior is increased or decreased by positive or negative reinformcement. An example would be giving an animal food to get them to perform a specific action.
Don't let me trick you. This is operant conditioning.
True
False
29
1
Operant conditioning is when an animal learns to associate a previously neutral stimulus with a behavior that was once triggerd by a different stimulus. An example is starting to clean up at the end of class even if the bell does not ring.
Don't let me trick you. This is classical conditioning.
