A forced-choice preference assessment was conducted in which two dependent measures were used to select preferred stimuli: (a) approach responding and (b) latency to the first aberrant response. Stimuli identified as preferred based on both dependent measures were then evaluated during treatment. The results suggested that latency may be a useful measure in(More)
The authors evaluated the responsiveness of 4 preschool-aged children to positive reinforcers within a concurrent operants paradigm during mealtimes. The children were presented with two identical, concurrently available sets of food. Each set differed in quantity and quality of positive reinforcement paired with acceptance of each bite of food or in the(More)
Drawing from research on parental unemployment, sibling differences and life course theories, I consider whether (and how) the timing of a parent's job loss moderates the impact of the event on children's educational attainment in adulthood. Life course and child development theories lead to a hypothesis that the timing of family events in each child's life(More)
The 10S-->6S (Flexed-->Extended) transition in smooth muscle myosin is related to increased ATPase activity, but there is controversy over whether the analogous 9S-->7S transition in HMM is also associated with ATPase activity. We therefore studied the association of ionic strength, phosphorylation, and ATPase activity for HMM as compared to S1 which has no(More)
