Conditioning and imprinting

IB Biology: Conditioning and imprinting

Innate behaviour helps to increase the survival chances of animals but it is not adaptable to changing circumstances. Learning behaviour allows animals to adapt more quickly. Reflexes are useful for connecting stimuli with responses, and the simplest types of learning result in the formation of new connections so that a new stimulus can be linked with a response. This is classical conditioning.Conditioning and Imprinting
