Sample text

In the first section, we develop the main theoretical ideas and derive a mathematical model for the simplest choice situation, the concurrent variable ratio variable ratio schedule, also known as the two-arm bandit game. In the second section, we compare the model with a set of findings already reported in the literature. In the third section, we describe the results of a set of new experiments designed to test the model in a more stringent way. In the fourth and final section, we extend the model to choice in concurrent variable interval variable interval schedules and then conclude with some remarks on the model’s strengths and limitations.

Including mutation in the model and Making Analogies Work 45 assuming g to be the identity function yields our master equation for Conc. 10 shows the fit of equation 8 to three data sets reported by Mazur. In the top panel, Mazur (1992) scheduled one reinforcer every 30 seconds, on the average, and then with probability r allocated it to one key, and with the complementary probability allocated it to the other key. The value of r varied across conditions. The symbols in the figure show the average results obtained with six pigeons.

To fit the model, we forced b to 1 and allowed a and m to vary. The initial p value was set to the average of the first two data points of the transition phase. As the lines show, the model fit the data well. In another experiment, Mazur (1995, experiment 2) varied the overall reinforcement rate but maintained constant the allocation probabilities and the pigeon’s initial preference. Reinforcers were scheduled once every 30 46 Machado, Keen, and Macaux Making Analogies Work 47 seconds, 60 seconds, or 90 seconds on the average.
