Operant conditioning


The process of training a subject (human or animal) to associate a particular stimulus with a particular response (known as an operant, or behavior) developed by B.F. Skinner is known as operant conditioning. Unlike classical conditioning, which involves reflex behavior and emotional responses, operant conditioning concerns other types of behavior, and is established primarily through reinforcement, i.e., systematic reward or punishment.
