the schedule of reinforcement.
The most important factor influencing resistance to extinction is....?
an intermittent schedule of reinforcement produces greater resistance to extinction than a continuous schedule.
According to the partial reinforcement effect...
Subjects are used to some unreinforced responses, and so it takes longer to realize/discover that the reinforcement has stopped.
Why do intermittent schedules of reinforcement produce greater resistance to extinction than continuous schedules?
extinction history, the magnitude of the reinforcers, and the degree to which the organism has been deprived of the reinforcer.
Resistance to extinction varies directly with:
the number of times the behavior has been reinforced.
Extinction history is...
The presence of a discriminative stimulus that signals extinction facilitates extinction.
The presence of a ________________ that signals extinction _____________extinction.
always permanently eliminated.
Although extinction weakens behavior, an extinguished behavior is not...
the sudden reappearance of an extinguished response after a rest period.
Spontaneous recovery is...
gradually diminishes, and so you need to be persistent when extinguishing behaviors.
With repeated sessions of extinction, the amount of recovery...
differential reinforcement of other (DRO), replacement behaviors.
The process of extinction can be facilitated through....
A key to extinguishing behavior is...
