  • temporal
  • Furthermore, we found temporal differences throughout the year - in early-mid spring, when new resources emerge, workers are more exploratory than at the end of winter, potentially allowing the colony to find and exploit new resources. (biologists.org)
  • Together, our findings provide partial support for the hypothesis that the temporal reactivity of the HPA axis is linked with consistent individual differences in behavior, with more cautious (slower exploring) individuals exhibiting a faster CORT response. (uni-konstanz.de)

Hull ' s (1884-1952) multiple learning variables and performance equations relating them to each other and behavior. (encyclopedia.com)

  • stimulus
  • For more than a century, the term reinforcement has referred to the emergence of a reliable, learned change in behavior produced when a response or stimulus is differentially followed by a rewarding or punishing event (a reinforcer). (encyclopedia.com)
  • The aim is to control the stimulus conditions under which behavior is observed and to explain why intellect develops, as well as describing how and when it develops. (encyclopedia.com)
  • tendency
  • Lurcher mice showed different space exploration activity in the open field and a lower tendency to depressive-like behavior in the forced swimming test compared with pcd mice. (frontiersin.org)
  • patterns
  • The behavior patterns for I.R. managers and military leaders were significantly different. (uwo.ca)
  • During his lengthy career, Skinner focused increasingly on the control of human behaviors by reinforcers, at first by using reinforcement schedules to produce human-like behaviors in pigeons, including " superstitions " and " assembly-line " response patterns. (encyclopedia.com)
  • forced swim
  • The mice were tested in the open field for exploration behavior, in the Morris water maze with visible as well as reversal hidden platform tasks and in the forced swimming test for motivation assessment. (frontiersin.org)
  • tests
  • Exploratory and confirmatory factor analyses along with construct validity tests were performed on data obtained from two large, community samples. (umd.edu)
  • Finally, it was found, through a number of tribological tests, that the obtained classes and levels have a different wear behavior. (hindawi.com)
  • Reliable
  • Reliable codes were cross-classified with variables representing respondents' function and level, task (negotiation, administration) on which the I.R. manager was engaged, perceived effectiveness of the behavior, and measures of perceived I.R. climate in the respondents' bargaining situation. (uwo.ca)
  • frequency
