Conditioned Suppression

Conditioned suppression is another portion of the theory of classical conditioning. This refers to the reduction of the frequency of a learner response, i.e., when a conditioned response (pressing a bar for water) was originally elicited by a pain stimulus the conditioned response can be suppressed by a removal of the pain stimulus and pairing it with another neutral stimulus (for example ringing a bell).
