Conjugate Reinforcement.
Lewis, Richard F.
Conjugate reinforcement is a new attention measure which has emerged from experimental psychology. It can provide accurate measurement of a subject's attention to a stimulus. In conjugate reinforcement, the duration of the stimulus varies directly and immediately with the subject's rate of response. In this process, the subject must demonstrate his attention continuously by pressing a small key at a required rate to maintain the presentation of the stimulus. This paper provides a brief introduction to the techniques. It discusses the background of the reinforcement system, defines the concept, and describes a series of procedures in which it has been used. It also explains applications of the procedures and describes the advantages of the technique. The technique is useful in helping to explain how learning from audiovisual aids takes place.
