is the non-reinforcement of a previously reinforced response.
The process of Extinction
the resultant decrease in the response strength.
A temporary increase of responding when extinction is first distinguished.
Side effects of Extinction
1. Burst 2. Aggression 3. Emotional behavior 4. Depression
Resistance to Extinction
is the extent to which responding persists after an extionction procedure has been implemented.
Factors that weigh on Extinction from happening
1.History of REI- How often/frequent the REI was given.
2. Magnitude of REI - large-magnitude REI vs. small REI
3. Degree of Deprivation- Greater deprivation greater resistance to extinction.
the reappearance of an extinguished response following a rest period after extinction.
Differential reinforcement of other behavior DRO
REI of any other behavior other than the target behavior being extinguished.
Differential reinforcement of incompatible behavior DRI
REI a behvaior that is incompatible with the target behavior
the presence of a SD reliably affects the probability of the behavior
the more similar the stimulus, the stronger the response. the tendency for a response to be emitted more in the presence of a stimulus that is similar to an SD.
the opposite of Stim Generalization- the tendency for an ope rant response to be emitted more in the presence of one stimulus than another
REI responding in the presence of one stimulus and NOT another stimulus.
Errorless Discrimination Training
minimizes the numbers of errors and reduces adverse effects associated with discrimination training.
