Fish displaying and infants sucking: The operant side of the social behavior Coin

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 23 (2):254-255 (2000)

We applaud Domjan et al. for providing an elegant account of Pavlovian feed-forward mechanisms in social behavior that eschews the pitfall of purposivism. However, they seem to imply that they have provided a complete account without provision for operant conditioning. We argue that operant conditioning plays a central role in social behavior, giving examples from fish and infant behavior.
