The Department of Applied Behavioral Analysis Speaker Series: “The Role of Joint Control in Listener Responses & Generative Responding”

October 22, 2017 @ 12:30 pm - 2:30 pm CDT

The Department of Applied Behavior Analysis Speaker Series presents:

“The Role of Joint Control in Listener Responses & Generative Responding”

Joint control is “the effect of two discriminative stimuli acting jointly to exert stimulus control over a common response topography” (Lowenkron, 1998, pp. 328-329). In other words, a verbal response can be emitted simultaneously under two distinct sources of stimulus control. This presentation will discuss research on the role of joint control in the development of generative responding, such as the role of joint control when teaching manded selection responses and in the acquisition of foreign language.
