The Five Components of Animal Behavior
||Taxes - A Taxis is a movement of the entire animal in
response to a particular stimulus.
|Reflexes - A reflex is a response of a specific body part
(e.g., an organ) to a specific stimulus and involves a reflex arc.
||Instincts - An instinct is an inherited, encoded sequence
of a fixed action pattern.
|Learning - Learning is an adaptive modification of behavior toward a stimulus that can be traced to a specific experience in an animal's life with that same stimulus or a similar one, or learning is a more or less permanent change in behavior as a result of experience.|
||Reasoning - Reasoning is the ability to choose from alternatives that are represented in the mind and evaluated, i.e., the ability to solve problems and formulate concepts.|
