March AALAS Webinar


Be sure to visit our Education page to learn more about upcoming AALAS webinars. Review webinar recordings and consider watching a webinar from the free classic titles available to members.

The March 24 webinar will be held from 12:00 to 1:30 PM CT. The topic is "Behavioral Training in Laboratory Animals: Effects of Patterns of Reinforcement."

The speaker will address standard schedules of reinforcement, that is, how often, how frequently, and when a consequence is provided for a behavior, and these affect how often an animal produces a goal or "anti-goal" behavior.

A reinforcer can be given for:

  • Every presentation of the goal behavior (continuous reinforcement)
  • Some of the presentations of the goal behavior (partial reinforcement), or
  • Withheld for all presentations of the goal behavior (extinction)
