Question:

What is a thesis?

Inactive
Alison G.
Answer:

A thesis is a statement, often located at the end of an introductory paragraph, that provides the reader with an idea of where your paper will go. A thesis statement should be able to stand by itself in terms of comprehensibility, and it can be as structured or open as the paper/subject requires. When citing evidence or analyzing a text, it is always necessary to keep the thesis in mind and make sure that the writing being done will ultimately strengthen the argument the thesis presents.

Question:

What is classical conditioning?

Inactive

Answer:

Classical conditioning was a phenomenon accidentally discovered by Ivan Pavlov. During an experiment about saliva and digestion, dogs would be fed a meat powder at certain times during the day. Pavlov realized the dogs began to salivate at the mere presence of the handler, before they were presented with any of the powder. Pavlov then began experimenting with different stimuli and began using the famous bell. In this example, the meat is the unconditioned stimulus and salivation is the unconditioned response. After repeated use of the bell, the bell and meat powder become associated and the bell becomes a conditioned stimulus for the conditioned response of salivating.
