Posted by on .

Can someone please tell me if I am defining operant conditioning correctly:
Operant conditioning is a process of increasing or decreasing a specific behavior through reinforcement (positive or negative), punishment or extinction. The person operates based on the environment through learned discriminative stimulus.

  • psychology/ABA - ,

    The orriginal question:
    Define operant conditioning and discuss how this method works to increase desired behavior.

  • psychology/ABA - ,

    If behavior is rewarded after it is done, that behavior is likely to be repeated. Punishment leads to a temporary suppression of the behavior, while nonreward (neither reward nor punishment) follows the behavior, it will go to extinction.

    This article might help a little more.
