Insight learning- when an animal applies something it has already learned to a new situation, without a period of trial and error

Habituation- simplest type of learning; process by which an animal decreases or stops its response to a repetitive stimulus that neither rewards nor harms the animal

Operant Conditioning- An animal learns to behave in a certain way through repeated practice, in order to receive a reward or avoid punishment. Also called trial and error

Classical Conditioning- any time an animal makes a mental connection between a stimulus and some kind of reward or punishment

Learned behavior, appears after animals alter their behavior as a result of experienceTypes- habituation, classical conditioning, operant conditioning, and insight learning
