Mom! Tommy got a stomach virus - an unconditioned stimulus! It causes a response that is automatic, like vomiting!
Ugh...I feel awful & I keep throwing up as an unconditioned response, meaning that it occurs from an unconditioned stimulus, like the stomach flu.
That chocolate really messed me up...or made me more susceptible to another stomach virus, it's almost like it's a conditioned stimulus, which is a stimulus that causes a response because one learns to associate it with something.
One month later...
Hey sis! Can I have some chocolate too?
My stomach hurts again! Oh man...I don't think that chocolate was such a good idea.
Later that day...
The next day...
Haha very funny. I used to love it, but now, every time I look at chocolate it makes me want to vomit. It's like a conditioned response or a learned response to a stimulus that was previously neutral.
