  2. 2. In the beginning,there was the rat.
  3. 3. Skinner saw that the rat had no box.
  4. 4. And lo, there was a box.SkinnerBox
  5. 5. What are you lookin’ at?Rat…… rat...
  6. 6. If you give a behaviorist a rat,a lever, and a reinforcer, what will you get?
  7. 7. “A behavioralcontingency.”
  8. 8. Look around, contingenciesare all around you.They’re everywhere that yougo.You try everything you can toescape the pain of shock,Rudolf knows.
  9. 9. If all else fails and you can’tavoid aversive shock andbeing really annoyed.I know a way you can stop thismess.Its called a lever press, andthat’s what it’s for.
  10. 10. So come on respond.Press your paw right down on it.Come on respond.Press the lever down now.I know you can do it.
  11. 11. All you need is some waterreinforcement.It’s right there under your nose.Move aside, just a bit, youalmost touched it.Please just stand on your toes.
  12. 12. I will shape your successiveapproximations to pressing thelever down.If you do it, you will get waternow.That’s the situation.That’s how it’s done.
  13. 13. So come on respond.Press your paw right down on it.Come on respond.Press the lever down now.I know you can do it.
  14. 14. Water’s given for pressing, notjust for your cleaning andscratching.After you have learned that, youwill learn how to pull the chain,touch the sticker.Then you’ll be a well-trained ratnow.
  15. 15. Respond.Press your paw right down on it.Come on respond.Press the lever down now.I know you can do it.

  18. 18. Respond…… Water’s in thedipper.
  19. 19. Force, duration, frequencydescribe responses, not stimuli.Response, behavior, stimulusall of these apply to us.Thinking, rules, such as thatapply to humans, but not rats.
  20. 20. When reinforcement’sintermittent, it makes extinctionmore resistant.Greater effort, quicker satiation,but you’ll respond underdeprivation.
  21. 21. That’s the way it always goes,when you learn to use your toes.Now you know how to pull thechain.I can’t believe how quick youlearned this game.
  22. 22. Don’t just stand there,let’s get to it.Press the lever,there’s nothing to it.Respond…..
