This course gives students an understanding of the environmental factors that control and modify animal (including human) behaviour. Theories of behaviour, especially quantitative theories are stressed and discussed in relationship to both animal and human research. Both basic and advanced theoretical principles and some more applied issues in the area of learning and the experimental analysis of behaviour are covered. There is a broad coverage of the principles of reinforcement, operant conditioning, respondent (or classical) conditioning, and stimulus control. More applied issues discussed include: verbal behaviour, relationship violence and drug use/abuse. It is a requirement of enrolment in the course that students have access to the CQU World Wide Web site via the Internet.
