what specific environmental modifications could you make to alter the stimulus-response relationship

Consider your own reflexive or respondent behaviors that occur as a result of a previous stimulus-stimulus pairing in your environment. Using the respondent conditioning “equation” to guide your organization, identify the unconditioned stimulus and the unconditioned response.

Next, identify the neutral stimulus, and discuss the event(s) that contributed to the formation of the conditioned stimulus eliciting the conditioned response. How does this respondent behavior impact you in your environment? If this behavior impacts you in a negative way, describe the process you could use to extinguish the stimulus-stimulus pairing that elicits your conditioned response. If this behavior impacts you in a positive way, describe the process you could use to elicit the same response under the control of other stimuli.

Stimulus events can be discussed in terms of their features and relationships to behavior (physical, temporal, & functional). Changes in stimuli occur both as antecedent and consequence events, which affect an individual’s response. Think about some of your own response patterns that occur. Within a specific example, identify a set of antecedent stimuli that would demonstrate a stimulus class that influences your response(s), clearly explaining what establishes those stimuli as a stimulus class. Next, discuss your current response(s) to that stimulus class that make up a functional or structural response. Are there other responses that would fit to create a response class? Finally, what specific environmental modifications could you make to alter the stimulus-response relationship
