Learning the Temporal Dynamics of Behavior.
Psychological Review, v104 n2 p241-65 Apr 1997
A dynamic model of how animals learn to regulate their behavior under time-based reinforcement schedules is presented. It assumes serial activation of behavioral states during the inter-reinforcement interval, an associative process linking the states and operant response, and a rule mapping the states onto response rate.
