Elicited Behavior
  1. Elicited Behavior
    1. Corresponding Response
      1. Reflex Arc
        1. Sensory Neuron
          1. Sensory neurons are nerve cells within the nervous system responsible for converting external stimuli from the organism's environment into internal electrical impulses.
          2. Motor Neuron
            1. Cell body is located in the motor cortex, brainstem or the spinal cord, and whose axon (fiber) projects to the spinal cord or outside of the spinal cord to directly or indirectly control effector organs, mainly muscles and glands.
            2. Interneuron
              1. Interneurons create neural circuits, enabling communication between sensory or motor neurons and the central nervous system
            3. Orienting Response
              1. an organism's immediate response to a change in its environment, when that change is not sudden enough to elicit the startle reflex. ... The orienting response is a reaction to novel or significant stimuli.
              2. Central Pattern Generator
                1. neuronal circuits that when activated can produce rhythmic motor patterns such as walking, breathing, flying, and swimming in the absence of sensory or descending inputs that carry specific timing information
              3. Behavior that happens in response to an environmental event
              4. Fixed or Modal Action Pattern
                1. an instinctive behavioral sequence that is relatively invariant within the species and almost inevitably runs to completion
                2. Sign or Releasing Stimulus
                  1. Fixed action patterns, or similar behaviour sequences, are produced by a neural network known as the innate releasing mechanism in response to an external sensory stimulus known as a sign stimulus or releaser.
                  2. Supernormal Stimulus
                    1. an exaggerated version of a stimulus to which there is an existing response tendency, or any stimulus that elicits a response more strongly than the stimulus for which it evolved.
                    2. Behavior Systems Approach
                      1. put the focus on the set of trajectories of a dynamical system rather than on a specific set of equations modelling the underlying phenomenon.
                      2. Habituation
                        1. a form of learning in which an organism decreases or ceases its responses to a stimulus after repeated or prolonged presentations
                          1. Dual Process Theory
                            1. provides an account of how thought can arise in two different ways, or as a result of two different processes. Often, the two processes consist of an implicit (automatic), unconscious process and an explicit (controlled), conscious process
                            2. Spontaneous Recovery
                              1. the re-emergence of a previously extinguished conditioned response after a delay
                              2. Dishabituation
                                1. the fast recovery of a response that has undergone habituation, typically as a result of the presentation of a novel, strong or sometimes noxious stimulus
                                2. Generalization
                                  1. when habituation occurs in response to other stimuli that are similar to the original stimulus
                                  2. Discrimintaion
                                    1. when habituation does not occur to other stimuli that are dissimilar to the original stimulus
