The Temporal Triange: Response Substitution in Instrumental Conditioning
Rachlin, Howard; Burkhard, Barbara
Psychological Review, 85, 1, 22-47, Jan 78
Presents a model that borrows concepts of economic utility theory to describe the effects on behavior of a contingency among responses. If subjects allocate their time among responses to maximize the value of their behavior, contingency may be seen to restrict the set of available allocations. Describes the allocation of time to contingent, instrumental, and adjunctive responses. (Editor/RK)
