Classical Conditioning Quiz! Trivia Questions

Classical conditioning refers to a learning technique in which a biologically potent stimulus is paired with a formerly neutral stimulus.

Classical conditioning is a fundamental learning process. With this quiz, you will learn all about classical conditioning.
