Classical Conditioning of a mouse by a Hawk- Alichia House R7
This storyboard does not have a description.
Oh look it's a Hawk! We should get away from it. It looks scary! This is an unconditioned stimulus, which is a stimulus that causes a response that is not learned.
I don't know why, but seeing the hawk makes me want to turn around. This is a unconditioned response which is a response that occurs from an unconditioned stimulus.
AHHHH!!!!!! MY FRIEND!!!!NOOOOO
I'm just going to hide in this cave from the Conditioned stimulus, the Hawk, which is the stimulus that causes me to have a certain response because I associate it with the death of my friend.
OHH NOO NOT AGAIN!!! AHHH!!! oh it's just a crow
Now whenever I see something that looks similar to the hawk I want to go hide. that is because I have a Conditioned response, a learned response to a stimulus that is previously neutral.
