    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.
