Altering Response Chains in Pathological Gamblers Using a Response-Cost Procedure
Johnson, Taylor E.; Dixon, Mark R.
Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, v42 n3 p735-740 Fall 2009
Two pathological gamblers could choose between emitting or having the dealer emit the response options when playing each of three casino games. A response-cost procedure was introduced in a multiple baseline design across games in which the participant had to pay to perform the responses himself, which was somewhat effective at reducing many of the initial irrational choices made by each participant. (Contains 1 figure.)
