📣 🥳🤓 We are thrilled to announce our first publication as members of our new home, the Center for Biomedical Research at UV, in the International Journal of Comparative Psychology, associated with the International Society for Comparative Psychology! Our study emphasizes the use of entropy as a measure and its application in the analysis of the spatial dimension of behavioral systems!
Our research focused on the spatial organization of water-seeking behavior under time-based, non-contingent reinforcement schedules, and how this behavior is affected by the location of the water supply. The study showed a robust effect of the location of water delivery and an effect of the reinforcement schedule on the spatial organization of water-seeking behavior in all analyzed variables!⏰↗️↘️💧🐁
These findings highlight the ecological relevance of the spatial organization of the environment and the spatial dimension of behavior itself and contribute to the discussion on the behavioral systems proposed by Timberlake.
