Unconditioned Stimulus

 
US - A stimulus that causes an unconditioned response on the part of the organism.

In Pavlov's dog experiments, when the dog was presented with the site and smell of food, it salivated. In this case, the site and smell of food is the unconditioned stimulus, because it evokes salivation (the unconditioned response) in the dog naturally, without the dog having to be trained.
