Does conditioned suppression measure the resistance to change of operant behaviour?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Although conditioned suppression has face validity as a technique for assessing resistance to change of operant behaviour, it is not discussed by Nevin & Grace. However, application of their approach to the results of a conditioned suppression study that varied food deprivation and reinforcement magnitude (Leslie 1977) produces paradoxical results.
