innate behaviour in invertebrates
Innate behaviour in invertebrates
  • Taxis and kinesis are two terms used to describe innate motor behaviors in invertebrate species.
some examples of types of learning
Some Examples of Types of Learning
  • Imprinting :Young ones become attached to their mother. Helps in survival because the young ones staying close to their mother get protection and food.
  • Example: duckings following their mother
  • Imitation
  • Development of “templates” for behavior*
    • Inherited or innate skill sets that are developed with exposure to target response
      • e.g. birdsong
  • Conditioned responses
    • Classical Conditioning*
    • Operant Conditioning

  • IB Objective: Outline Pavlov’s experiments into conditioning of dogs. (E.3.5)
classical conditioning definitions
Classical Conditioning:Definitions

Unconditioned Stimulus (UCS): a stimulus that has the ability to produce a specified response before conditioning begins.


Unconditioned Response (UCR): response produced by the UCS.


Conditioned Stimulus (CS): an initially neutral stimulus that comes to produce a new response because it is associated with the UCS.


Conditioned Response (CR): the response produced by the CS.

  • IB Objective: Outline the role of inheritance and learning in the development of birdsong in young birds. (E.3.6)
  • Birds have species-specific sounds that are inherited. However, there is also a component of learning to the song that a bird will produce as an adult.
    • If a male bird is kept in isolation in a laboratory, he will produce a very crude (but species-specific) song, according to an inherited template.
    • Furthermore, if deafened, the song will be even more crude.
practice questions
Practice Questions
  • Distinguish between learned and innate behaviours.
  • Describe the design of an experiment which measures either taxis or kinesis of an invertebrate animal.
