• Behavior

  • Innate Behavior

  • Learned Behavior

  • Social Behavior

  • Behavior is described as a reaction to a stimulus, which is an internal or external event that leads to a response.

  • Innate Behavior

  • Taxis

  • Reflex

  • Kinesis

  • Learned Behaviors are acquired changes in behavior during one’s lifetime

  • Conditioning

  • Habituation

  • Imprinting

  • Cost-Benefit of Altruism

  • Kin Selection

  • Innate Behavior are “inherited” or “instinctive” behaviors that are simple or complex; innate behaviors are fully functional the first time they are performed - even without previous exposure to the stimulus.

  • Taxis is a response to a stimulus resulting in movement toward or away from the stimulus. It’s an oriented movement.

  • Reflex is an automatic response to a stimulus.

  • Kinesis is the movement of an organism in response to a stimulus that does not result in movement directly away or towards a stimulus.

  • Classical conditioning is a behavior that occurs when one stimulus is associated with a second stimulus that produces a particular response

  • Operant conditioning is a behavior learned through repeated practice to receive a reward or avoid a punishment

  • Habituation is a decrease of response to a stimulus after repeated exposure

  • Imprinting is when animals recognize and follow the first moving object they see - normally a parent

  • When an individual sacrifices itself for its relatives or those that are similar to the individual, its fitness isn’t harmed as much because its relatives have much of the same genes as it does.

  • Kin selection is when an individual chooses to help its relatives in order to increase the survival of its traits
