Transcript of Animal Behavior- Habituation, Imprinting and Conditioning

Study of Animal Behavior Habituation, Imprinting, & Conditioning Imprinting Conditioning What is Learning? Accoring to Oxford Dictionary;
"Learning: knowledge acquired through study, experience, or being taught." Habituation is when animals (including humans) stop responding/realizing a stimulus which was continuous. This is only after the animal realizes that the stimulus is harmless. This is a type of learning because the knowledge of something being harmless is being taught. It is also teaching the animal the knowledge of being able to block out/stop responding to a stiumulus. Example: The A/C in Mr. Kumpel's room continuously makes a loud vibrating sound. Now I don't realize the sound due to habituation. Imprinting:
A learning that is irreversible. This happens at a
specific time (usually at young age). This is also a learning because it 'imprints' the knowledge of (for example) who my mom is in my brain.
Example: The bonds between the mother and the young Example 2 (in the wild):
If a wild animal was caught and put into a cage,
it would react as if it was going to die.
However, soon enough it will realize it is not going
to be harmed and be less alarted. Example 3:
If a fisherman went fishing and when he threw out his bait,
the fishes will all scatter but soon it will suddenly not think about the hook and go for the worm. There are 2 types of Conditioning:
Classical and Operant Conditioning.

Classical Conditioning: Type of learning when animals learn to associate with a stimulus and either recieve a reward or a punshiment.

Example: When my dog hears the word "bath", she goes hides underneath the cabinet.

Example 2: When I hear the distinctive bell sound, I know it is time for dinner! Operant Conditioning:
Type of learning when an animal does something or act in a
different behavior and which has a positive or negative consequence.

Example: Baby Charile ran towards the skunk. After realizing that skunks
farted horrible gas on him, he never touched one ever again.

Example 2: When my cat jumps on my lap and lays on his back, I know
he is wanting a belly rub. Thank YOu!
