Classical Conditioning Homework

                Remember:
                The UCS (unconditioned stimulus) is the stimulus that automatically triggers a bodily response or emotional reaction.
                The UCR (unconditioned response) is the response the UCS triggers. No learning is required for the UCS-->UCR.
                If some neutral stimulus is present before or during the UCS, it can become "associated"  with the UCS and become a
                CS (conditioned stimulus) and can come to trigger a similar response. When the response is triggered by the CS (rather
                than the UCS), then the response is called a CR (conditioned response) - this response shows that learning (conditioning)
                has occurred.

                   1. While you were taking your first shower in the dorms, someone flushed a nearby toilet. Your comfy shower
                        turned so scalding hot that you had to jump out of the stream of water. Now whenever you hear a flush while
                        you are showering, you jump out of the way.

                   2. People receiving chemotherapy often vomit during or shortly after the procedure. After several chemotherapy
                       sessions, they begin feeling sick as soon as they enter the treatment room.

                    3. Eating Mom's wonderful cookies always makes your mouth water ( IF you get any, that is, before your roommate
                        gobbles them up!!). To guarantee you do get to eat the cookies, you hide them in your zippered duffle bag in your
                        closet. Now just the sound of unzipping the duffle makes your mouth water.

                    4. Not-so-clever Margo drank many shots of Rootbeer Schnapps and the alcohol made her really sick.
                        The next day she popped a rootbeer candy in her mouth, but immediately had to spit it out because
                         it made her feel so nauseated.

                    5. You're involved in a passionate relationship. Whenever you and your honey makeout (and get turned one), you
                         play your special CD. Now just hearing that music makes you feel kind of turned on.

                    6. Mikey cried after receiving a painful vaccination from a nurse in a white jacket. The next week his mother
                        couldn't understand why Mikey burst out in tears when the barber (in a white jacket) welcomed them to his shop.
