Product Description

The contingent relationship between actions and their consequences lies at the heart of Skinner’s experimental analysis of behavior. Particular patterns of behavior emerge depending upon the contingencies established. Though Ferster and Skinner examined the effects of differing schedules of reinforcement on the behavior of pigeons, the basic principles they discovered apply equally to the behavior of other species including human beings.
