Part 1 Think of a classically conditioned response you have experienced and describe the process of learning this response (what was the process you went through in becoming classically conditioned in this response). Be sure to identify the following: Neutral stimulus (NS) Unconditional stimulus (UCS) Unconditional response (UCR) Conditioned stimulus (CS) Conditioned response (CR) Part 2 Address the following questions: Describe a practical application that demonstrates this classically conditioned association from your own life. What function does this classically conditioned association serve? Explain what would happen if you no longer responded to this conditioned stimulus. Describe the manner in which generalization works to maintain classical conditioning. Identify the stimulus that has been generalized or could be generalized in your classically conditioned response.
