Conditioned response



A learned response triggered by a stimulus after conditioning.


In classical conditioning as first demonstrated by I. Pavlov on dogs, a conditioned response is the learned response through repeated pairing with the unconditioned stimulus. In I. Pavlov's pioneering experiment in classical conditioning on dogs, a conditioned response was the salivation of dogs in response to the bell sound (neutral stimulus that became conditioned stimulus).
