After the day of the wreck, Yung avoided the corner of 9th and Mulberry. He knew that there was nothing wrong with thatparticular location, but since the acident he experienced shortness of breath and tightness in his muscles when he drove past the corner. Classical conditioning would explain that:
(a) the accident was the conditioned response, while the corner had becomethe conditioned stimulus
(b) the anxiety from an accident is a unconditioned response, while the anxiety suffered at the corner after the accident is the conditioned response
(c) the corner is the conditioned response, while the anxiety suffered at the corner after the accident is the unconditioned response
(d) the accident is the conditioned stimulus,while the corner after the accident is the unconditioned stimulus
I chose (b) Is this correct?
