• The schedule with which the vouchers are disbursed has been studied and results suggest that those schedules that incorporate escalating magnitude of reinforcement for consecutive instances of abstinence and a reset contingency, which reduces the value of the vouchers for instances of use, seem to provide the best treatment outcome.

  • In this paper we explore several other scheduling arrangements while using the escalating schedule with a reset contingency as the comparator. (ed.gov)
  • Regarding responses emitted in the presence of the stimulus correlated with the lowest reinforcement probability, the same author suggested that their frequencies could be a byproduct of the regular alternation of tD and [t.sup. (thefreelibrary.com)
  • For each possum, each of the four foods functioned as reinforcers when presented in a single-schedule arrangement, including those foods identified as less preferred. (waikato.ac.nz)
  • It was also found that when the concurrent alternative was on an FR 50 schedule, the response rates, break points and Pmax values of the food on the PR schedule tended to be higher than when the concurrent alternative was on an FR 20 schedule. (waikato.ac.nz)
