Term of the Week: Antecedent

This week Mike and I bring you a short video on the term antecedent. This was a request following last week’s video on Reinforcement/Reinforcers. We hope you’ll like it.

Please make sure to comment, share, and request topics for next week’s post.

We have a new live course coming up, where we will be hosting a chat and answering a Q&A session with students. If you’re interested, fill out this form to reserve your spot. Limited seats available.

  1. Applaud!!! Great explanation of some behaviors that are under stimulus control. I gathered from the examples in the video that a stimulus control develops because a behavior is reinforced in the presence of a particular antecedent stimulus. Therefore time of day can become a discriminative stimulus. Ex. When we (students) start closing our books of fidgeting right before class ends.
    Mike and Liliane you both generate good energy and enthusiasm.

    • Very good! Another explanation for the fidgeting behavior is CMO (Conditioned Motivating Operation)– but that is a term for another week’s discussion, right?
