The Use of Observational Technology to Study In-Store Behavior: Consumer Choice, Video Surveillance, and Retail Analytics.

Behav Anal 2017 Nov 2;40(2):343-371. Epub 2017 Oct 2.

1School of Business, UiT-The Arctic University of Norway, N-9480 Harstad, Norway.

The store is the main laboratory for in-store experimental analysis. This article provides an introduction to a research program aimed at improving research practices in this laboratory, particularly emphasizing the importance of behavioral data and the new opportunities that technology offers. This complex modern-day Skinner box has sets of well-studied stimuli-behavior interactions that constantly adapt to the latest economic environment and as such constantly stretch the boundaries of behavioral analytic theory.

Temporal Discounting and Marketing Variables: Effects of Product Prices and Brand Informational Reinforcement.

Behav Anal 2017 Nov 2;40(2):475-492. Epub 2017 Oct 2.

Instituto de Psicologia, Universidade de Brasília, Campus Universitário Darcy Ribeiro, ICC-Sul, Brasília, DF 70 910-900 Brazil.

By integrating the temporal discounting perspective, according to which the value of rewards is progressively discounted as a function of delay, and the Behavioral Perspective Model (BPM), according to which the purchase of products can produce utilitarian (directly obtained from use) and informational (social, mediated by others) reinforcing and punitive consequences, the present research investigated: 1) if temporal discounting would be better described by an exponential or a hyperbolic function; 2) if differently priced products would differ with respect to temporal discounting rates; and 3) if brands offering different levels of informational reinforcement would differ with respect to temporal discounting rates. In a first phase of the research, 73 undergraduate students evaluated brands of cell phone, tablet and TV set, in order to rank each brand according to the informational reinforcement level they offered. In a second phase, during an online purchasing simulation of these products, 51 students were asked to state how much they were willing to pay in order to anticipate product delivery, which was free after 21 days.

Building Consumer Understanding by Utilizing a Bayesian Hierarchical Structure within the Behavioral Perspective Model.

Behav Anal 2017 Nov 2;40(2):419-455. Epub 2017 Oct 2.

Cardiff Business School, Cardiff University, Aberconway Building, Colum Drive, Cardiff, CF10 3EU UK.

This study further develops the theoretical and empirical literature on the Behavioral Perspective Model (BPM) in three ways through an empirical analysis of the Great Britain (GB) biscuit category. First, following a literature review and a category analysis, a more complex model is constructed using the BPM structure and then testing the hypothesis uncovered. Second, the structure of the data theoretically calls for a hierarchical structure of the model, and hence, this is introduced into the BPM framework and is compared to a non-hierarchical structure of the same model.

Online Healthy Food Experiments: Capturing Complexity by Using Choice-Based Conjoint Analysis.

Behav Anal 2017 Nov 2;40(2):373-391. Epub 2017 Oct 2.

2Westerdals Oslo School of Arts, Communication and Technology, Christian Kroghs gate 32, 0186 Oslo, Norway.

The impact of complex environmental factors on consumer choices and preferences can be analyzed through the prism of consumer behavior analysis, whereas variations of marketing attributes and their impact on choice can be measured using conjoint analysis. Considering the case of the constantly growing online food selections, we discuss choice-based conjoint analysis and explore the opportunities for behavior analysts to examine the interrelationships of multiple variables and socially important choice settings, and to promote desired behaviors. We show a few examples of using trade-off analyses in online food retail to understand consumer behavior with respect to healthy food items. Read More

Consumer Maximization of Utilitarian and Informational Reinforcement: Comparing Two Utility Measures with Reference to Social Class.

Behav Anal 2017 Nov 2;40(2):457-474. Epub 2017 Oct 2.

2Cardiff Business School, Cardiff University, Aberconway Building, Colum Drive, Cardiff, CF10 3EU UK.

Based upon the Behavioral Perspective Model (BPM), previous analysis has shown that consumers tend to maximize utility as a function of the level of utilitarian (functional) and informational (social) reinforcement offered by brands. A model of consumer brand choice was developed, which applied a Cobb-Douglas utility function to the parameters that constitute the BPM, using consumer panel data. The present paper tested a variation of the previous model, which allows for measures of consumer utility at the level of aggregate household, in addition to utility per consumed product unit (e.

Behav Anal 2017 Jun 19;40(1):107-121. Epub 2017 Jun 19.

Department of Psychology, Utah State University, Logan, UT 84322 USA.

Behavior analysis has often simultaneously depended upon and denied an implicit, hypothetical process of reinforcement as response strengthening. I discuss what I see as problematic about the use of such an implicit, possibly inaccurate, and likely unfalsifiable theory and describe issues to consider with respect to an alternative view without response strengthening. In my take on such an approach, important events (i. Read More

NEURAL Networks and Consumer Behavior: NEURAL Models, Logistic Regression, and the Behavioral Perspective Model.

Behav Anal 2017 Nov 16;40(2):393-418. Epub 2017 Jun 16.

Cardiff University, Cardiff, UK.

This paper investigates the ability of connectionist models to explain consumer behavior, focusing on the feedforward neural network model, and explores the possibility of expanding the theoretical framework of the Behavioral Perspective Model to incorporate connectionist constructs. Numerous neural network models of varying complexity are developed to predict consumer loyalty as a crucial aspect of consumer behavior. Their performance is compared with the more traditional logistic regression model and it is found that neural networks offer consistent advantage over logistic regression in the prediction of consumer loyalty.

The Fuzzy Concept of Applied Behavior Analysis Research.

Behav Anal 2017 Jun 15;40(1):123-159. Epub 2017 May 15.

2Department of Applied Behavioral Science, University of Kansas, Lawrence, KS 66045 USA.

A seven-dimension framework, introduced by Baer, Wolf, and Risley in an iconic 1968 article, has become the de facto gold standard for identifying "good" work in applied behavior analysis. We examine the framework's historical context and show how its overarching attention to social relevance first arose and then subsequently fueled the growth of applied behavior analysis. Ironically, however, in contemporary use, the framework serves as a bottleneck that prevents many socially important problems from receiving adequate attention in applied behavior analysis research.

Behavior Analyst Certification Board, Littleton, CO, USA.

The need for a credible professional credential became apparent early in the history of applied behavior analysis. The first efforts to develop a system that identified behavior-analytic practitioners having a specified level of expertise in the profession began in the early 1970s. Over the years, a number of credentialing initiatives were developed in an effort to meet the profession's growing needs for a means of establishing a meaningful professional identity. Read More

Some twenty-five years ago published a paper by David Rider (, 171-181, 1991) titled "The speciation of behavior analysis." Rider's thesis was that basic and applied behavior analysis, for a variety of reasons, are destined to become independent species. In a commentary on this paper I pointed out, for example, that scientists and engineers are interdependent, especially at the frontiers of application. Read More

Progress of and Prospects for Hypothetical Purchase Task Questionnaires in Consumer Behavior Analysis and Public Policy.

Behav Anal 2017 Nov 4;40(2):329-342. Epub 2017 Apr 4.

1Applied Behavioral Biology Unit, Institutes for Behavior Resources, Baltimore, MD USA.

Based on the conceptual, methodological, and analytical framework of operant behavioral economics, hypothetical purchase task (HPT) questionnaires provide a low cost, scalable, and quantitatively rich source of empirical insights on consumer motivation, preferences, and decision-making. Here, we briefly summarize the history of HPT development and validation in clinically oriented research in addiction through to recent work with more conventional consumer goods and services. We discuss several possible novel applications of HPT methods to consumer behavior analysis for business, marketing, and public policy formulation and evaluation, as well as emerging best practices, limitations, and additional directions for future research and development.

Behav Anal 2017 Jun 15;40(1):257-273. Epub 2017 Mar 15.

Fundación Universitaria Konrad Lorenz, Bogotá, Colombia.

This paper seeks to reinterpret current tenets of functional analytic psychotherapy (FAP) using some assumptions of molar behaviorism. In it, a conceptual alternative to the molecular approach is proposed to explain the mechanisms of change of FAP. To achieve this goal, the utility and limitations of using discrete responses and stimuli as units of analysis are discussed. Read More

Oslo and Akershus University College of Applied Sciences, Oslo, Norway.

In successful multiple exemplar training, a set of exemplars that sample the range of stimulus and response topographies is trained, and the full range of performances results. Examples abound in experimental psychology and include abstraction and concept learning, responding to relations, identity matching, rule following, behavioral variability, responding to wh-questions, describing past events, learning sets, and continuous repertoires. Thus, behavior analysts often allude to a history of multiple exemplar training to account for different generalized performances. Read More

Behav Anal 2017 Nov 21;40(2):539-548. Epub 2016 Nov 21.

Department of Psychology, Illinois State University, Normal, IL 61761 USA.

A popular measurement heuristic called the "Dead Man Test" predicts that behavior will be absent in vitality-challenged individuals. Unfortunately, the core idea behind the Test lacks empirical support, is hopelessly vague on several counts, and may be at odds with key aspects of behavior theory. This raises serious concerns about whether the Test should continue to be employed as a guide to behavioral measurement. Read More

Coal Is Not Black, Snow Is Not White, Food Is Not a Reinforcer: The Roles of Affordances and Dispositions in the Analysis of Behavior.

Behav Anal 2017 Jun 7;40(1):17-38. Epub 2016 Nov 7.

2Department of Psychology/296, University of Nevada, Reno, NV 89557 USA.

Reinforcers comprise sequences of actions in context. Just as the white of snow and black of coal depend on the interaction of an organism's visual system and the reflectances in its surrounds, reinforcers depend on an organism's motivational state and the affordances-possibilities for perception and action-in its surrounds. Reinforcers are not intrinsic to things but are a relation between what the thing affords, its context, the organism, and his or her history as capitulated in their current state. Read More

Neurobehavioral Laboratory, Department of Behavior analysis, University of North Texas, 1155 Union Circle Box 310919, Denton, TX 76201 USA.

We describe here two approaches introduced by Abrahamsen (1987) that can be used by behavior analysts to interpret neuroscientific data. The first is a "boundary-bridging" approach aimed at understanding the interdisciplinary interactions between the behavioral and the neural levels of analysis while keeping the two domains independent. When presenting the boundary-bridging approach, we describe neuroplasticity, a perspective that describes how changes at the brain level can be understood by examining behavioral factors. Read More

Department of Psychology/296, University of Nevada, Reno, Reno, NV 89557 USA.

The origins of the Behavior Analysis program at the University of Nevada, Reno by way of a self-capitalized model through its transition to a more typical graduate program is described. Details of the original proposal to establish the program and the funding model are described. Some of the unusual features of the program executed in this way are discussed, along with problems engendered by the model. Read More

The Munroe-Meyer Approach: Continuous Integration of Didactic Instruction, Research, and Clinical Practice.

Behav Anal 2016 May 19;39(1):157-66. Epub 2016 Apr 19.

University of Nebraska Medical Center's Munroe-Meyer Institute, Omaha, NE 68198 USA.

Increased demand for applied behavior analysis (ABA) services has increased the need for additional masters-level practitioners and doctoral-level academicians and clinical directors. Based on these needs, the University of Nebraska Medical Center's (UNMC) Munroe-Meyer Institute has developed a PhD program. The academic structure at UNMC allowed us to create our PhD program in a relatively quick and efficient manner. Read More

Necessity and Opportunity: the 1-Year Master's ABA Program at Auburn University.

Authors:
James M Johnston

Behav Anal 2016 May 18;39(1):135-42. Epub 2016 Apr 18.

Auburn University, Auburn, AL USA ; 493 Cherokee Boulevard, Knoxville, TN 37919 USA.

The Auburn University Master of Science program in Applied Behavior Analysis was designed to accommodate not only the requirements of the Behavior Analyst Certification Board for approved course sequences and practicum training, but unavoidable limitations in faculty and other resources. These limitations were incompatible with the more traditional 2-year curriculum model, so a 1-year program was designed that met the necessary conditions. This article describes the resulting academic and practicum curriculum, the key funding mechanisms that allowed the program to develop, and the opportunities and benefits that this model afforded.
