Respondent Conditioning

The process of pairing a stimulus that naturally elicits a reflexive response with other stimuli repeatedly until the previously neutral (other) stimuli can elicit the reflexive response independently. The most common example is Pavlov’s dog experiment in which dogs were conditioned to salivate at the sound of a bell after the bell was repeatedly paired with the natural antecedent stimulus of the smell of delicious meat.
