Xtreme Rat Challenge

This morning I turned the TV on and watched the National Geographic channel. They had a story on about rats ( One of the things they showed was the Xtreme Rat Challenge. This was about training rats to do tricks.

It struck me how similar that was to the sort of classes parents receive as part of their Service Plan.

Xtreme Rat Challenge

The Xtreme Rat Challenge is the final demonstration project for students in NWU's Basic Learning Principles class. While in lecture, students study the intricacies of behaviorist learning theories, in lab they are able to directly apply this information.  They may experiment with timing, types of reinforcers and techniques.
