Terms & Properties

Concept Unique Identifier (CUI): C0009647

NCI Thesaurus Code: C41258  (see NCI Thesaurus info)

Semantic Type: Mental Process

NCIt Definition: Generally refers to relative simple learning situations in which a stimulus initially incapable of evoking a certain response acquires the ability to do so by repeated pairing with another stimulus that does elicit the response.

NCI-GLOSS Definition: A type of learning in which repeated exposure to something may affect a person's behavior when they encounter an unrelated object, sound, or smell that occurred at the same time as the initial exposure. For example, a patient who always feels sick after receiving chemotherapy in a clinic that smells a certain way may be conditioned to feel sick when smelling the same odor in a different place.

CSP Definition: process by which an organism can be made to respond to a previously neutral (conditioned) stimulus as it would to another (unconditioned) stimulus by pairing the two sitimuli; e.g., pairing a bell with food eventually will make a dog salivate when bell is heard.

MSH Definition: A general term referring to the learning of some particular response.

SOS A basic learning process in which a given stimulus comes to be associated with another stimulus or with a response. (NIDA) (scope note in first edition) AOD
SOS A form of learning (or teaching or training) in which an organism learns the association between a conditioned stimulus A and an unconditioned stimulus B (*+FK6.2 classical conditioning*) or a stimulus/response combination A and a reinforcer B (*+FK6.4 operant conditioning*). In either case, the organism learns from a contingency of two elements, that is, the occurrence of element B is contingent on the prior occurrence of element A. AOD
