Baby Albert’s Conditioning Definitions: Unconditioned stimulus (ucs): agent that leads to a response without training Unconditioned response (ucr): automatic response to a ucs Neutral stimulus (ns): agent that initially has no effect Conditioned stimulus (cs): a former ns that comes to elicit a given response after pairing with a ucs Conditioned response (cr): a learned response to a cs Generalized stimulus (gs): production of a similar response to similar stimuli Extinction: gradual disappearance of a conditioned response because the cs is repeatedly presented without the ucs Directions: Once you have read “Whatever Happened to Baby Albert,” use the above definitions to answer the questions that follow. 1. Identify the UCS, UCR, NS, CS, CR, GS in Watson’s experiment. 2. How did this experiment go a step beyond Pavlov’s original classical conditioning of his dog’s? 3. How would you have “deconditioned” (extinquished) Albert’s fear of white fury things? 4. Do you think that Albert’s life experience would have extinguished his fear naturally? 5. Take a guess at what career Watson took after being fired from his university. 6. Do you think that Watson’s experiment with Baby Albert was justified by what he discovered about how people learn?
