a collaborative knowledge base characterizing the state of current thought in Cognitive Science.
a form of learning in which a stimulus (designated the "conditional stimulus" or CS and being one without inherent significance) is paired with an unconditional stimulus or US, so named because it is biologically significant (e.g. food, sex, drug, pain), until the participant responds to the former in a way that conveys its association of the two. Importantly, participant response may be different between the US and its paired CS.
