Transcript of Imprinting, Habituation and Conditioning... How animals learn

What is Learning?
Learning is the process of acquiring knowledge in a diffrent or systematic ways. ( Habituation Habituation is when an animal stops responding to a stimulus because it adapts to the stimulus. An example of Habituation in the wild is when elephants don't respond to the constant pecking of birds, on their back.

An example of Habituation in the wild is when a tree branche's shadow distracts a lion a few times till he habitutates to it and no longer reacts to it.

An example of Habituation is frogs and hot water. If you put frogs in water and you heat is slowly the frogs will Habituate until they boil to death. Imprinting Imprinting is when learning takes place at a certain time and is normally irreversable.

An example of Imprinting is when Angelo d'Arrigo taught endagered birds to fly using a hang glidder.

The Power Point Notes, (Intro to Bio). Conditioning Conditioning is a type of learning that has to do with association, there are two diffrent types of Conditioning, Classical Conditioning and Operant Conditioning.

Classical conditioning is when an animal learns to associate a stimulus with a reward or punishment.

Operant Conditioning is when an animals acctions have positive or negative consequens, for their actions(it is also the most common way animals learn in the wild).

An example of Classical Conditioning is when a dog is trained to get the newspaper for his master everymorning, his master starts giving him a treat before he fetches the newspaper and the dog will start associating the treat with the newspaper this is an example of classical conditioning.

An example of Operant conditioning is when a snake eats a poisonius bug, and gets sick from that bug. has a choice to eat the bug again but decieds not to bcause he knows he will get sick. How are these terms a type of learning? Habituation, Imprinting and Conditioning These are types of learning because they are ways animals acquire knowledge through systematic studies. Habituation uses the "Stop Responding" method, Imprinting uses the "1 st impressions" method, Classical Conditioning uses the "Association" method and Operant Conditioning uses the "Trail-and-Error" method.
