    Should We Essentially Ignore the Role of Stimuli in a General Account of Operant Selection?Rick A. Bevins - 2001 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 24 (3):528-529.
    The selectionist account of behavior is actually a focused discussion of operant selection. To this end, the authors essentially exclude stimuli from their analysis. This exclusion is inconsistent with the importance placed on environmental interaction in their general account. Further, this exclusion limits the generality of their account by missing important sources of stimulus-elicited behavior (e.g., classical conditioning).

    The Need for Proximal Mechanisms to Understand Individual Differences in Altruism.Gustavo Carlo & Rick A. Bevins - 2002 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 25 (2):255-256.
    There are three concerns regarding Rachlin's altruism model. First, proximal causal mechanisms such as those identified by cognitive neuroscientists and behavioral neuropharmacologists are not emphasized. Second, there is a lack of clear testable hypotheses. And third, extreme forms of altruism are emphasized rather than common forms. We focus on an overarching theme – proximal mechanisms of individual differences in altruism.

    Role of Affective Associations in the Planning and Habit Systems of Decision-Making Related to Addiction.Marc T. Kiviniemi & Rick A. Bevins - 2008 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 31 (4):450-451.
    The model proposed by Redish et al. considers vulnerabilities within decision systems based on expectancy-value assumptions. Further understanding of processes leading to addiction can be gained by considering other inputs to decision-making, particularly affective associations with behaviors. This consideration suggests additional decision-making vulnerabilities that might explain addictive behaviors.
