This chapter illustrates that learning reflects the neurophysiological design and operations of the body. Such is the case with respondent conditioning, which acknowledges that a response is conditioned by a stimulus that elicits the response. The chapter also discusses the difference between respondent and operant conditioning. Respondent conditioning determines the occasions for unlearned patterns of responding of the kind generally governed by the autonomic nervous system. By contrast, operant conditioning encourages responses that bring about procurement of various things and events and states of being.

Keywords:   learning, respondent conditioning, stimulus, operant conditioning, response, autonomic nervous system
