Every Monday morning, a friend would bring Lauren her favorite latte and a doughnut from a coffee shop by her house. And every Monday morning, her stomach would growl right before her friend rang the doorbell and handed her the weekly treat. She noticed a month later that her stomach growled each time the doorbell rang in the morning even if it was not Monday.
Given what you have learned about learning processes, which type of learning has Lauren experienced? What do you think is the best way to get her to “unlearn” her behavior? What implications does this understanding of the learning process have on our ability to make changes in our lifestyle? Support your reasoning with information from the text and other course materials.
