User: What is the difference between classical and operant conditioning? Provide an example of each type of conditioning.

Weegy: Classical conditioning just involves the pairing of stimuli and the association that results between the two. A behavior that would normally be the result of one stimulus becomes the result of the other also due to the association created. [ Pavlov's dogs salivating at the sound of the bell they'd come to associate with being fed is an example. Operant conditioning requires that the subject perform some action (and that the action is either rewarded or punished to either encourage or dicourage the behavior.) It's usually used for behavior modification. ]
