Classic conditioning, studied by Pavlov, is concerned with stimuli which automatically evoke responses. There are certain stimuli in your environment that cause reflex responses, such as noise, electrical shock, light, and the taste of food. This type of stimuli are referred to as respondent or unconditioned stimuli. Respondent stimuli are frequently considered involuntary or automatic responses. These responses are not under your control. (Reminder: Answers to all questions are to be transferred to the Institute Manual, which is returned to us.)

Question #1: Give an example of an unconditioned or respondent stimuli or Stimulus Generalization: According to Skinner, a response, which is repeatedly reinforced in the presence of a particular situation, is likely to be repeated in that situation again, where the situation and stimuli often share common properties.

Response Generalization:
Altering a person's response can influence other responses. For example, if your client is praised for good grades in spelling, the frequency of good grades in English and reading might also increase. So in other words, reinforcement of a response increases the probability of increasing other responses which are similar. Generalization is of central importance to behavior modification applications. When a target behavior is changed and continues outside of the training situation, the clinician has most generally accomplished his or her purpose.

Target behaviors need to be defined explicitly so they can actually be observed, measured, and agreed upon. To be objective, target behaviors should be observable characteristics of the behavior or of the environmental events.

Behavioral specific terms: A description of an individual's behavior in observable terms specifies what he says or does. Reference to unobservable constructs, such as "ego impairment" or "striving for masculinity," are insufficient to describe a person's behavior in measurable terms.

Question #2: Place an "x" before the following statements written in behaviorally specific terms
(a) Mary took a box of cheese from the refrigerator.
(b) Bill expressed his feelings of frustration at the baseball game.
(c) John showed angry feelings toward his teacher this week.
(d) Martha placed a dirty cup in the sink.

Gestational diabetes and cardiovascular disease risk - October 16, 2017
A history of gestational diabetes was associated with a modest higher long-term risk of cardiovascular disease in women in a new study, although the absolute rate of cardiovascular disease was low in the study's younger group of predominantly white women and adhering to a healthy lifestyle over time appeared to help mitigate the risk, according to a new article.
Ischemic stroke patients not receiving life-saving treatment, study finds - October 12, 2017
Ischemic stroke patients who do not receive intravelous (IV) alteplase, a clot-dissolving medication, are significantly less likely to survive, according to researchers.
Experimental 'nano-chemo' particle to treat bladder cancer - October 12, 2017
Working with mice and rats, researchers have developed a way to successfully deliver nano-sized, platinum-based chemotherapy drugs to treat a form of bladder cancer called nonmuscle-invasive that is found in the lining of the organ and has not invaded deeper into bladder tissue. The tiny drug-infused particles, they say, potentially offer a less toxic clinical alternative to standard chemotherapy delivered intravenously or through a catheter inserted into the bladder.
New guidelines published to improve diagnosis and treatment of lupus - October 11, 2017
The UK's first guideline on the care of adults with systemic lupus erythematosus (lupus) has now been released by scientists.
New study examines full range of post-stroke visual impairments - October 11, 2017
Researchers have examined the visual impairment screening/referral forms from 915 post-stroke patients from 20 NHS hospital trusts. Overall 84% were visually symptomatic with visual field loss the most common complaint followed by blurred vision, reading difficulty, and diplopia.
