Positive Reinforcement: The process by which people learn to perform behaviours that lead to the positive reinforcer (i.e. reward).
Negative Reinforcement: The process by which people learn to perform behaviours that will help them avoid undesirable consequences.
Punishment: Presenting an undesirable or aversive consequence in response to unwanted behaviour.
Extinction: The process through which responses that are no longer reinforced tend to gradually diminish in strength.
Latent learning: Learning which is not apparent in the learner's behaviour at the time of learning, but which manifests later when a suitable motivation and circumstances appear.

We from links between internal expectations and the external rewards. This link is strengthened if our choices are rewarded.
