Classical Conditioning

a phenomenon described by Ivan Pavlov (1849-1936), in which a significant stimulus which evokes an innate, often reflexive, response is accompanied by another unrelated stimulus; if the two stimuli are repeatedly paired, an organism will learn to respond in the same way to the second stimulus alone. Also called Pavlovian Conditioning or Respondent Conditioning
