I taught my cat how to high five!



Operant Conditioning is an incredibly powerful model for learning and it is the most popular technique used in animal (and human) training! Micah decided to wield its power to train the cats to give a high five and jump into his arms. Is operational conditioning strong enough for both tricks to succeed? B.F. Skinner, who is best known for his work on operational conditioning, believed that practically all behavior could be boiled down to a response based on past experiences and their consequences. Once you finish watching this video, you be the judge.

In this video, Micah defines and explains operant conditioning and how positive reinforcement, negative reinforcement, positive punishment, and negative punishment can all be used to influence behavior. Of course, in this experiment, only positive reinforcement was used. Leave a comment below with your thoughts and feedback!
