What is involved in a pavlovian extinction procedure?

When operant behavior that has been previously reinforced no longer produces reinforcing consequences the behavior gradually stops occurring.


what was the main finding in the Kamin Blocking theory, and what theory did this challenge?

the conditioning of an association between two stimuli, a conditioned stimulus (CS) and an unconditioned stimulus (US) is impaired if, during the conditioning process, the CS is presented together with a second CS that has already been associated with the unconditioned stimulus.


What is Rascorla wagner theory?



Why is spontaneous recovery incompatible with Rascorla Wagner?

Spontaneous recovery should not happen because after extinction the associative strength of the CS should be zero.
