This article introduces the quantitative analysis of choice behavior by describing a number of equations developed over the years to describe the relation between the allocation of behavior under concurrent schedules of reinforcement and the consequences received for alternative responses. Direct proportionality between rate of responding and rate of reinforcement ...

Experiments 1, 2, and 3 investigated generalized contextually controlled symmetry and asymmetry in typically developing children and children with autism. In Experiment 1, eight typically developing children demonstrated the target performances without intervention. In Experiment 2, multiple-exemplar training and the use of familiar stimuli appeared to be effective in establishing ...

In this study, we further explored whether any of the dimensions in the five-factor model of personality (i.e., openness to experience, conscientiousness, extroversion, agreeableness, and neuroticism) were related to facets of workaholism (i.e., work involvement, work drive, and work enjoyment) in a sample of American workers in various occupational settings. ...

Using a sample of Chinese college students (n = 216), the present study showed that future-oriented coping negatively correlated with perceived pressure and positively correlated with successful job hunting. The relationship between proactive coping and preventive coping was also explored. Structural equation modeling suggested that a sequence model was better ...

The current article reports two experiments designed to examine the effects of creating competing approach and avoidance response functions for 2 stimuli that participate in the same derived stimulus relation. Experiment 1 involved establishing each of 2 distinct members (i.e., B1 and D1) of the same 1-node equivalence relation (A-B-C-D) ...

The current study examined the variables that influence postreinforcement pause (PRP) duration in rats when wheel running serves as the reinforcing consequence. The relationship between revolutions and PRP duration when revolutions were manipulated within a session and the effect of changing the response requirement from fixed to variable on PRP ...

Operant extinction contingencies can undermine the discriminative stimulus effects of drugs. Here, nicotine (0.4 mg/kg) and ethanol (0.8 g/kg) first functioned as either an [S.sup.D] or [S.sup.[DELTA]] in a counterbalanced one-lever go/no-go (across sessions) operant drug discrimination procedure. Pavlovian extinction in the training context (levers removed) grossly undermined the response ...

The current research consisted of 2 studies designed to test the effectiveness of automated multiple-exemplar relational training in raising children's general intellectual skills. In Study 1, 4 participants were exposed to multiple exemplar training in stimulus equivalence and the relational frames of SAME, OPPOSITE, MORE THAN, and LESS THAN across ...

Andrographis paniculata Nees (Acanthaceae), an annual erect herb, is known for its broad range of pharmacological properties. This study reports the effect of different arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungal inocula on plant growth and percent concentration of andrographolide. The study revealed a significant increase in growth in all the treatments and ...

Hypericum perforatum L (Hp) beneficial properties in wound healing have been known since the era of Hippocrates. The aim of the study was to investigate the restoration quality of incised skin under locally oily Hp Rotoel[R] treatment in Freund's adjuvant arthritis Wistar rats. Histological skin specimens of rats were evaluated ...

Antimicrobial activity of 25%, 50%, 75% and 100% alcohol extract of Cinnamomum verum and Syzygium aromaticum has been evaluated against bacterial strains of Pseudomonas lundensis and Bacillus cereus and fungal strains of Aspergillus flavus and Aspergillus niger. Extracts from both Cinnamomum verum and Syzygium aromaticum showed excellent antimicrobial activity against ...
