The purpose of this experiment was to compare the effects of combining negative reinforcement and positive reinforcement during teaching with the effects of using positive reinforcement alone. A behavior was trained under two stimulus conditions and procedures. One method involved presenting the cue ven and reinforcing successive approximations to the target behavior. The other method involved presenting the cue punir, physically prompting the target behavior by pulling the leash, and… Expand
Identifying and Resolving End of Session Cues in Substance Detection Canine Training
TLDR
This paper will identify and examine multiple factors associated with “End of Session Cues” in working dogs, how they may be responsible for poor final response performance and discuss potential strategies to address them. Expand

The effect of non-contingent negative and positive reinforcement operations on the acquisition of superstitious behaviors
TLDR
Findings and results from research investigating everyday superstitious activities suggest that, relative to positive reinforcement, negative reinforcement operations may provide a more fertile condition for the development and maintenance of superstitious behaviors. Expand

TLDR
This study with humans extends the findings of previous studies with animals in revealing how a punishing stimulus can acquire discriminative or conditioned reinforcing properties. Expand

TLDR
Responses of pigeons were maintained by a VI schedule of food reinforcement and conditioned punishment procedure, which reduced the overall response rate as long as the procedure was in effect. Expand
A review of positive conditioned reinforcement.
TLDR
Experimental data relevant to the concept of conditioned reinforcement is critically analyzed and the evidence indicates that the conditioned reinforcing effectiveness of a stimulus is directly related to the frequency of primary reinforcement occurring in its presence, but is independent of the response rate or response pattern occurring in it presence.

Chaining and secondary reinforcement based on escape from shock.
TLDR
Three white rats trained to press a bar while being shocked produced a white noise, indicating that the effectiveness of the noise as a reinforcer did not depend on its status as a discriminative stimulus for some other form of operant behavior. Expand
STIMULUS ASPECTS OF AVERSIVE CONTROLS: STIMULUS GENERALIZATION OF CONDITIONED SUPPRESSION FOLLOWING DISCRIMINATION TRAINING.
TLDR
The gradient of stimulus generalization following training to a single stimulus was symmetrical, whereas the gradient following discrimination training was asymmetrical, but there was no evidence of peak shift. Expand
