    The Role of Negative Reinforcement; Or: Is There an Altruist in the House?Edmund J. Fantino & Stephanie J. Stolarz-Fantino - 2002 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 25 (2):257-258.
    We agree with Rachlin's argument that altruism is best understood as a case of self-control, and that a behavioral analysis is appropriate. However, the appeal to teleological behaviorism and the value of behavioral patterns may be unnecessary. Instead, we argue that altruism can generally be explained with traditional behavioral principles such as negative reinforcement, conditioned reinforcement, and rule-governed behavior.

    Measuring Fairness Across Cultural Contexts.Edmund Fantino, Stephanie Stolarz-Fantino & Arthur Kennelly - 2005 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 28 (6):822-822.
    Future economic game research should include: (1) within-culture comparisons between individuals exposed and not exposed to market integration; (2) use of a game (such as the “Sharing Game”) that enables subjects to maximize their earnings while also maximizing those of the other participant; and (3) assessment of performance in a repeated-trials format that might encourage sensitivity to the games' economic contingencies.

    Grandparental Altruism: Expanding the Sense of Cause and Effect.Edmund Fantino & Stephanie Stolarz-Fantino - 2010 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 33 (1):22-23.
    Grandparental altruism may be partially understood in the same way as other instances of altruism. Acts of altruism often occur in a context in which the actor has a broader sense of cause and effect than is evident in more typical behavioral interactions where cause and effect appear relatively transparent. Many believe that good deeds will ultimately produce good results.

    The Future is Uncertain: Eat Dessert First.Edmund Fantino - 1995 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 18 (1):125-126.
    There may be evolutionary as well as economic reasons why organisms generally act impulsively. I discuss this possibility and suggest some follow-up experiments that may clarify the exciting empirical and theoretical contributions made by the experiments discussed in the target article.

    Behavioral and Economic Approaches to Decision Making: A Common Ground.Edmund Fantino & Stephanie Stolarz-Fantino - 2001 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 24 (3):407-408.
    Experimental psychologists in the learning tradition stress the importance of three of the authors' four key variables of experimental design. We review research investigating the roles played by these variables in studies of choice from our laboratory. Supporting the authors' claims, these studies show that the effects of these variables are not fixed and should not be taken for granted.

    The Role of Learning in Normative and Non-Normative Behavior.Stephanie Stolarz-Fantino & Edmund Fantino - 2004 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 27 (3):358-359.
    There are good reasons why social psychologists have emphasized the negative side of human reasoning. They are simply following humans' tendency to pay particular attention to unusual occurrences. Attempts to refocus attention onto a wider range of behavior should include the influence of learning on both normative and non-normative behavior.

    Enhancing Sensitivity to Base-Rates: Natural Frequencies Are Not Enough.Edmund Fantino & Stephanie Stolarz-Fantino - 2007 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 30 (3):262-263.
    We present evidence supporting the target article's assertion that while the presentation of base-rate information in a natural frequency format can be helpful in enhancing sensitivity to base rates, method of presentation is not a panacea. Indeed, we review studies demonstrating that when subjects directly experience base rates as natural frequencies in a trial-by-trial setting, they evince large base-rate neglect.

    Game-theoretic rationality is not generally observed in human behavior. One important reason is that subjects do not perceive the tasks in the same way as the experimenters do. Moreover, the rich history of cooperation that participants bring into the laboratory affects the decisions they make.

    Pigeon Parallels to Human Metacognition.Edmund Fantino - 2003 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 26 (3):343-344.
    The target authors make a strong case for parallels between human and nonhuman metacognition. The case may be bolstered by an appeal to the literatures on commitment and self-control and to that on observing behavior.

    The Rationality Debate: Look to Ontogeny Before Phylogeny.Stephanie Stolarz-Fantino & Edmund Fantino - 2000 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 23 (5):698-698.
    Subjects have a rich history of decision making which would be expected to affect reasoning in new tasks. For example, averaging, a strategy that is effectively used in many decisions, may help explain the conjunction fallacy. Before resorting to accounts based on phylogeny, more parsimonious accounts in terms of ontogeny should be explored.

    Fish Displaying and Infants Sucking: The Operant Side of the Social Behavior Coin.Edmund Fantino & Stephanie Stolarz-Fantino - 2000 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 23 (2):254-255.
    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.

    The Role of Context in Choice.Edmund Fantino - 2000 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 23 (1):96-97.
    Nevin & Grace identify a difference between the predictions of delay reduction theory and the contingency-ratio account underlying behavioral momentum approaches to choice. This is shown not to be a true difference. The role of the overall context of reinforcement must be carefully incorporated by any theory of choice.
