The bells and treats was a blast, black and white seems pretty focused, tabby was a bit of a character, liked him/her. There were some subtle but great little mannerisms going on there, esp with tabby....enjoyed that.

We trained lab rats to push buttons, limb ladders, ride merry-go-rounds, and go down slides using little food pellets in Psych Lab 101, based on Skinner's work. We were also able to train fish, octopuses, and birds. Just about any creature with a brain can be trained using reward and punishment techniques. 

The second half of the experiment was to extinguish the learned behavior; simply remove the reward when the learned task was performed. 

I think anyone contemplating having children or getting married should learn Skinner's technique of learned behavior.

This must be the proof that humans can learn!

Or the treats run out. BUT.....Kiri lives for her treats, & Purrin really couldn't care less most of the time.

Comment by Loren Miller on February 8, 2020 at 1:47pm

Offhand, I'd say the evidence is incontrovertible.  The question becomes: how long can they keep it up before the HUMAN gets tired of playing!

Comment by Patricia on February 8, 2020 at 1:44pm

Oh they so get it, don't they?

Comment by Loren Miller on February 8, 2020 at 1:41pm

I'll bet B. F. Skinner never thought of THIS little business!
