STIMULUS GENERALIZATION

Is the effect of conditioning which removes the discrimination between two stimuli and responsible for evoking the same response. If responding is not able to discriminate from that seen in the presence of the original stimulus, generalization is said to be finished.

STIMULUS GENERALIZATION: "Stimulus generalization brings the same behaviour which can be seen in a response to different stimuli but are somehow linked to each other."
