In operant conditioning, organisms learn to associate a behavior and its In operant conditioning, positive and negative do not mean good and bad. .. One morning Ravi's dad has to leave early for a meeting, so he can't drive Ravi to school. It's occurred to me that most of the people who use controlling, coercive, and more In the context of operant conditioning, positive does not mean "good," and .. studied every teacher he could meet, and talked to every girl he could talk to to.

Just make sure you are consistent and give a clear cue that is different from everything else you do. When you want your bird to come, give the signal. Swing a lure too, if you need to, to tempt the bird; but this should be a temporary, training measure, only. I'd advise fading the luring after two or three successful "clicked" recalls. Now the bird starts to come your way.
CLICK and toss the lure. What if the bird then veers off? When you "click" is a judgment call. Sometimes the bird will not perform the whole recall, and sometimes it won't get the treat; but that's okay. At first, you might click for coming a very short distance; then for coming a longer distance; then from a longer distance, and all the way to you; then for just starting to come from a very long distance. You are, as it were, putting money in the bank. Every time you manage to click the bird for heading your way, after you waved at it, and it then comes all the way in and gets its prize, you are strengthening the chances that it will respond to your cue in the FUTURE.

Vary the distance, vary the difficulty. You can and should stretch the bird's capabilities, by deciding when you'll click and what you'll treat with; but don't lie with your strobe light or whistle. I would want to fade out the swing of the lure, which is baiting of a sort, nearly immediately.
As fast as I could, I would substitute my arm or flag "come here" signal, and click for the behavior of zooming toward me on that signal. Then I would click again when the bird is very close, and freely give the swung lure, with its delicious treat on it, as the primary reinforcer as the bird homes down to where I am. Like a bribe, when you constantly swing the lure you're offering food whether it's been earned or not.
The faster you can switch over to just the recall signal, with the lure presented after the CR, the less likely you will be to develop a bird that sits on a phone pole and watches you swing food around.
And herein lies another conditioning trap like the accidental conditioning of screaming described in Part I: When a bird has learned that a signal means "Do X and you will be rewarded," the signal itself becomes reinforcing. Don't you feel relieved when the light turns to green? Birds, also, get reinforced by "go" signals.
As often as possible, give your recall or swing the lure when the bird is heading toward you. If you fall into the habit of trying to MAKE the bird come, by waving or luring, when it, let us say, is huddled on the top of a phone pole, you may actually shapethe behavior of landing somewhere and staying there. You don't want a superb pole-sitter, but you made one. The best way to avoid this is to keep in mind the modern trainer's question: Another behavior falconers need in the field is the behavior of "waiting on", or hovering overhead waiting for game to be flushed.
Speaking as an animal behaviorist and trainer, one of the biggest thrills of my working lifetime, just about as exciting as working trained dolphins in the open sea, was seeing a peregrine, a gyrfalcon, and a prairie falcon each "waiting on", watching their owners in clear expectation of what might happen next, while hunting several sorts of game at Lamar at the NAFA Meet in November The training problem in "waiting on" is that one needs the bird to be high enough so that it has a decent hunting chance when the game flushes.
The simplest step, which only takes self-control, is to try not to flush the game until the bird is high enough. With a new or young bird, one might make the first flush a reinforcement for waiting on at all, then the second flush for waiting on higher, and thus help the bird, in three or four experiences, to learn to climb.
The CR, however, can easily be inserted here. Get set up, with game out there. When the bird climbs, flash the light, THEN kick the ducks up or send the dog in. Like all predators, and this I learned in Lamar these birds are experts at learning something from a single event. The CR just intensifies this learning experience.
I hope you can now see there are two ways around this: So, occasionally, you might want to click for altitude and then bring the bird down. More importantly, in flushing the game you have a wonderful primary reinforcer, an event the bird is hard-wired to want, which you can present as the pay-off for clicked behavior no matter how far up the bird is.
Why not just use the circumstances, the flushed game, to train the behavior, rather than all this folderol of artificial signals? Lots of people have been doing so for centuries, and it works. The "click" just makes it work faster and better. These birds are hard-wired to learn fast. Rather than waiting for random successes and failures to teach the bird to climb higher, you can use your CR and the flush to notify the bird that climbing is good.
Then when it starts climbing on purpose quite soon after being released which it will you can start using your CR to tell the bird what altitude you like.
You can also use other kinds of situations to communicate to the bird what's wanted. So, for example, if you find no game, but your bird is up there, click it strobe, whistle, whatever for its altitude, give your recall, click it for coming to the glove, and give a good treat.
So, you got skunked today: There are some even fancier tools in the operant-conditioning kit: Before getting into all that, however, I'm hoping that some of these suggestions will indeed prove useful to falconers, that there will be aspects of raptor behavior and learning, and of falconry itself, that I am not familiar with, that you will be able to tell me about, that you will build on the operant methods described here, and share your creative insights and approaches with the rest of us clicker trainers out there.
We've seen them attempt this with the reward system via Eververse. Everyone can see it, they just have a hard time understanding the process exactly, or how it works. Typically any type of reward or positive feedback involved with reward will increase the level of dopamine in the brain. Since Dopamine is the "feel-good" neurotransmitter in the brain, people want more of it, they love experiencing it. This is how people become addicted to recreational drugs those drugs increase dopamine neuronal activity.
In Destiny 1 engram decryption was something exciting, you'd get to that reward screen after finishing the nightfall you're heart rate still slightly elevated because a fireteam member clutched the Ultra kill instead of reviving you, almost getting you all sent back to orbit and you're waiting to see what you get. The box is spinning, the icon changes colors and shape, and BAM! Imago Loop, Gjallarhorn, Red Death, or whateverfuckyouguy.
Crota constantly glitch-fucks your swordbearer multiple times! Hope is dwindling, emotions are high, final rockets are out, swoardbearer goes down, titan skates over, grabs the sword, boom! A lot of players have lost that reason to play because the current content under delivers, it doesn't reward the same. That's the real Power Fantasy. What Bungie did was shift the reward system to Eververse, and unless you were buying up those sweet sweet bright engrams, you wouldn't get that dopamine response because the thrill of playing for rewards is gone, but the thrill of getting random rolls from a Bright Engram package are alive and well.
But, you know what DOES have random rolls? Oh and the sparrows too. That's where that reason to play AKA Dopamine went. The closest thing you'll get to that reward feeling is that explosion of loot from the chest in a heroic strike. You feel like a winner even though the gear sucks, but you still feel amazing Dopamine! These are types of overcorrection procedures or when a person is expected to engage in effortful behavior for an extended period after the occurrence of an undesirable behavior.
The example of cleaning the room is called restitution, or restoring the environment to a condition that is better than it was before the undesirable behavior, and being super nice is called positive practice, or engaging in the correct form of behavior over and over again.

Other forms of Punishment In the military, it is quite common to have a soldier and his whole company who has not followed instructions or engaged in a behavior unbecoming a solider, to engage in push-ups, sit-ups, jogging in place, holding a rifle above the head, running extra laps around a track, etc.
These forms of contingent exercise should decrease the problem behavior in the future as will the heckling by the rest of the company after the exercise is over and the sergeant is gone. Sometimes a person is engaging in self-injurious problem behavior and need to be physically restrained or held down.
The restraint is not pleasant and results in the loss of voluntary control taking away something good which makes the behavior of hitting oneself in the head less likely to occur in the future the person should remember the discomfort of being restrained and the loss of control.
And finally, I think we all have been in the situation of not listening to our parents and being picked up or walked into our room, and shown how to clean it.

This form of guided compliance, or physically guiding the person through the activity is aversive and in the future he or she should engage in the desire behavior to avoid the discomfort of being guided avoidance behavior in the future; once you are doing the correct behavior in the present, the guidance compliance ends, which is NR and an escape behavior. As with all things in life, the answer is yes…and no.
In other words, there are pros and cons. Consistency is most important — If you punish each and every time the person engages in the undesirable or problem behavior, they will stop making the behavior i.
It can be unquestionably effective — Punishment can deter some criminals from repeating their crimes.
Avoidance training — Sometimes, after punishment has been administered a few times, it is not needed any more for the mere threat of it is enough to induce the desired behavior. Severity of punishment makes no difference — The mere fact of being punished is enough most times, not all. It is often administered inappropriately — In a blind rage, people often apply punishment broadly such that it covers all sorts of irrelevant behaviors.
At times, parents take out their frustrations at work on their kids and what would not have upset them much one day, angers them immensely another. The recipient of the punishment often responds with anxiety, fear, or rage and these emotional side effects generalize to the entire situation.
You can see this in animals when they have been punished for soiling the carpet and are disciplined. The effectiveness of punishment is often temporary, depending on the presence of the punishing person or circumstances. When the punisher is not there, the punished misbehaves again.

Of course, in a token economy, the response cost can be delivered immediately as is the case with the reinforcer in the form of the token, but token economies are used in select situations.
Punishment conveys little information — Does not tell the person how to act. If you want them to display desirable behavior, they have to know what it is.
