Unit 1

Course 5011

Behavior Analysis A natural science that studies functional relations between behavior & environment
Behavior Movement of an organisms parts & it's interactions with the environment -biological -involves movement -living organisms observed -measurable -interacts with environment
Public Behavior Behavior that can be observed by others ex-closing a door
Private Behavior Behavior that can not be observed by others ex-imagining, thinking
Response A specific instance of behavior ex- every time the bell is tapped
Topography Configuration, form or shape of a response (force, movement, sound, intensity, magnitude)
Antecedent A stimulus which occurs before a response. An environmental event before a response.
Stimulus Change in the environment which can affect behavior. An environmental event. Onset/offset Magnification/Attentuation Affects an organisms receptors
Consequence A stimulus which follows occurs after a response.
Functional Response Class 2 or more topographically different responses, same effect on the environment ex-signing drink, using PECS for drink Looks different, same function
Response Class Grouping of individual actions or responses that share commonalities ex- a hunk of cheese
Stimulus Class A group of stimuli that share certain characteristics. Have similar effects on behavior
Topographical Response Class 2 or more responses that share a common form. Look the same, different function
Pavlov Discovered conditioned reflex/physiologist
Function The effect of a response on the environment
Functional Relations Manipulating the environment and behavior through systematic manipulations
Environment Total constellation of stimuli and conditions which can affect behavior
Environmental Context The situation in which behavior occurs at any given time
Response Cycle Beginning, Middle, End of a response. ex- face slapping
Property A fundamental quality of a natural phenomenon.
Fundamental properties Temporal Locus Temporal Extent Repeatability
Temporal Locus A single response occurs in time.
Temporal Extent A response occupies time.
Repeatability A response can reoccur.
Dimensional quantities A quantifiable aspect of a property.
Latency The amount of time between a stimulus and a response.
Duration The amount of time between the beginning and the end of the response cycle.
Countability The number of responses or number of cycles of the response class.
IRT The time between two successive responses.
Rate The ratio of the number of responses over some period of time.
Celeration Change in one of the other dimensional quantities of behavior over time.
