Stimulus in the mechanisms of action
number of days: 3
Human actions can be classified as being either more stimulus-based or more intention-based. According to the ideomotor framework of action control, intention-based actions primarily refer to anticipated action effects, whereas stimulus-based actions are commonly assumed to be more strongly determined by stimulus-response [S-R] bindings.
The out come is Generalization the process that allows responding to stimuli that are similar to the cues used in original training. Discrimination is the process of responding to some stimuli but not others. Generalization and discrimination are studied by plotting a generalization gradient which shows the relationship between the degree of change in the original conditioning stimulus and response strength.
