Classical and Operant Conditioning
Conditioning is the act of being trained or accustomed to behave a certain way. Classical conditioning is, “learning to make an involuntary response to a stimulus other than the original, natural stimulus that normally produces the reflex” (Ciccarelli, 2012).

Classical conditioning involves pairing an unconditioned stimulus with a conditioned stimulus. The conditioned stimulus then produces a conditioned response. Operant conditioning then refers to associations between the
