TLDR
The generalized matching law can be applied to a signal-detection matrix to give two equations. Expand

  • 1 December 1994
The field of behavioral economics combines concepts from economics and operant conditioning to examine the influence of schedules or price on preference for reinforcers. Three case studies areExpand

  • 1 March 1995
Using an A-B-A-B design, two procedures for requesting a change of activity were compared for their effect on the stereotypic behavior of a man with autism. One procedure requested immediate changeExpand

A BEHAVIORAL ECONOMIC MODEL THAT EXPLAINS THE CHOICE AND ALLOCATION OF WORK RATE IS USED TO PREDICT PERFORMANCE PATTERNS IN THREE CONTEXTS: with single schedules, with concurrent schedules when totalExpand
Choice: Effects of changeover schedules on concurrent performance.
TLDR
The components of concurrent schedules were separated temporally by placing interval schedules on the changeover key. Expand
Distribution of response ratios in concurrent variable-interval performance.
Self-control: an application of the generalized matching law.
Predictions about impulsive and self-controlled choices were tested in an ABAB design with five mentally retarded children. Choices were between small immediate or large delayed reinforcers under twoExpand
Choice of reinforcement rates and work rates with concurrent schedules
Abstract A constrained optimisation theory or choice in concurrent schedules of reinforcement is presented. The theory posits that subjects evaluate both reinforcement rates and the work ratesExpand
Measuring severity of challenging behaviours: A behaviour disorder scale
The terms challenging behaviour and behaviour disorder have been used increasingly by administrators in Australia to draw attention to the issues raised by people of low intelligence who presentExpand
Assessing the ability to give informed consent to medical and dental procedures
Legislation has been introduced in states of Australia to claify who may give consent to medical and dental treatments on behalf of adults who are unable to make effective decisions because of aExpand
