Decision making ·
In learning theory and discrimination learning a discriminitive response is a response an organism makes of stimuli that it has to distinguish between in order to obtain a reward.
An example would be a pigeon in a Skinner box who has to choose between pecking at a square or a round stimulus in order to receive food, which would only be delivered after it hit the square target.
