FRQ Review 4th Quarter #1
Due Date: 3/26/2015
Subject: Psychology

FRQ Review #1

This FRQ brings up information from two units, Unit 5 States of Consciousness and Unit 6 Learning

1. Many people who are addicted to drugs report not being able to control themselves when their drug of choice is available. Learning principles may help explain this lack of control and may provide possible solutions.

A. Some people with alcohol dependence report that just the smell of alcohol creates a powerful sense of well-being, increasing the desire to drink the alcohol. Explain this reaction using a classical conditioning model, and describe one possible way to decrease the reaction. Use the following terms in your answer:
• Unconditioned stimulus
• Unconditioned response
• Conditioned stimulus
• Conditioned response
• Extinction

B. In cases of long-term addiction, some users report continuing their drug use to avoid the side effects of being without the drug. Explain this behavior using an operant conditioning model. Use the following terms in your answer.
• Tolerance
• Withdrawal
• Negative reinforcement
