  1. Behavioral bliss point
    THe preferred distribution of an organism's activities beofroe an instrumental conditioning procedure is introduced that sets constraints and limitations on response allocation
  2. Consummatory response theory
    a theory that assumes that species-typcial consumatory responses (eating and etc) are the critcal features of reinforcers
  3. demand curve
    the relation between how much of a commmodity is pruchased and the price of the commodity
  4. differential probability principle\
    Premack Principle
    a principle thatassumes that reinforcemnt depnds on how mcuh more likely the ogranisms is to perform the reinforcer resposne that the instrumental resposne beofre an insturmental conditioning procedure is introduced. The greater the differnital probability of the reinforcer and instruemntal resposes during baseline conditions, the greater is the reinfrocement effect of providing opportunity to engagein the reinforcer resposne after performance of the insturmental response
  5. Disequilibrium model
    model used in applied behavioral anlysis that assumes that reinforcement effects are produced by restrcting access to the reinfrocer resposne below the rate of this resposne during a noncontratined free baseline periond.
  6. Elasticity of demand
    the degreee to whihc proce influences the consumption or purchase of a commodity. If price has a large effect on consuption elasticity of demand is high. If the price has a small effect on consuption elasticity of demand is low
  7. minimum-deviation model
    a model of instrumental behavior, according to which participants respnd to a response-reinforcer contiengencey in a manner that gets them as close as possible to their behavioral bliss point
  8. response deviation hypothesis
    an explanation of reinforcement accoding to whihc restircting access to a resposne below is baseling rate of occurence (response deprivaiton) is sufficent to make the opportunity to perform that response an effective positive reinforcer
