In classical conditioning, backward conditioning occurs when a conditioned stimulus immediately follows an unconditioned stimulus. Unlike with traditional conditioning models, in which the conditioned stimulus precedes the unconditioned stimulus, the conditioned response tends to be inhibatory. This is because the conditioned stimulus serves as a signal that the unconditioned stimulus has ended.
