True or False
The following statement describes classical conditioning.
It involves the pairing of a conditioned stimulus with an unconditoned stimulus
I say True
No, not exactly. I am not certain of the meaning of uncontrolled stimulus.
Classical Conditioning is when a previously neutral stimulus (or the conditioned stimulus) elicits a conditioned response when paired with an unconditioned stimulus. This in turn causes a similar response (the unconditioned response).
Example: A certain smell reminds you of your grandmother's baking (smell and her baking-two stimuli). Her baking (makes you feel hungry-response) Hunger normally was only triggered by the stimulus,the smell.
I hope this helps. I had trouble with this too.
