Joint Control: A Discussion of Recent Research
Palmer, David C.
Analysis of Verbal Behavior, v22 p209-215 2006
The discrimination of the onset of joint control is an important interpretive tool in explaining matching behavior and other complex phenomena, but the difficulty of getting experimental control of all relevant variables stands in the way of a definitive experiment. The studies in the present issue of "The Analysis of Verbal Behavior" illustrate how modest experiments can take their place in a web of interpretation to make a strong case that joint control is a necessary element of such phenomena.
