PSEUDOCONDITIONING

In instances of Pavlovian conditioning, the elicitation of a response by a previously neutral stimulus. This occurs after a series of exposure to another conditioned stimulus. For example, after experiencing closing their eyes after the administration of a bight light source, a subject is likely to squint after a loud sound.

PSEUDOCONDITIONING: "Pseudoconditoning probably accounted for the subject's flinching after the loud noise."
