Abstract

For nearly a decade we ran studies in an operant (rat) laboratory. The purpose of these studies was to address phenomena that were pertinent to the application of behavioral principles and to better understand the nature of behavior. In this paper we will summarize the preliminary findings of two recent lines of research and we will discuss the implications for application. Specifically, we will discuss research on reinforcement contingencies that maintain behavior and reinforcement contingencies that suppress behavior (such as differential reinforcement of other behavior).
