I just googled the word “self”: 3,540,000,000 hits, more or less. That’s three-point five billion, just to be clear. Wow. What a word. What a construct. Whoever came up with the idea of self?

Why do people make bad choices? The answer can be found within the schedules of reinforcement that are occurring for that person. Bud Mace provides a refreshing review of all the simple and combined schedules of reinforcement. He further explains different features of combined schedules and how those can be understood through analyzing behavioral results.
Translational research typically is understood as the line of research that tries to take findings from basic research and then translates its applications in the applied field of behavior analysis. However, translational research can also take socially significant interests from the applied field and instigate research in the basic field. Translational research helped show that findings from non-human animal research could generalize to humans as well as create behavioral technology.
