A learned association is a connection that is made between two things that the person has learned about. This could be something that the person learned in school, something they learned from a friend, or something they learned on their own.

A learned association is when two unrelated stimuli are paired together in such a way that an individual experiences a response after just one of the stimuli. For example, if a lab rat is repeatedly exposed to a certain sound each time it receives food, the sound can become associated with the food. When the animal hears the sound, it expects food and begins to salivate. Another example is the Pavlov's dog experiment, which is a famous study on learned associations. Ivan Pavlov rang a bell each time he fed his dog, and soon the dog began to salivate when it heard the bell, even without food.
