As discussed in the article “Some Current Dimensions of Applied Behavior Analysis”, written by Donald Baer, Montrose Wolf, and Todd Risley in 1968, the seven dimension are: applied, behavior, analytic, generality, effective, technological, and conceptual systems.

For this week’s assignment, two studies will be analyzed and defined as a behavior analytic study, or not, through the seven dimensions of ABA.The first study is “The Relationship Between Intentional Self-Injurious Behavior and the Loudness Dependence of Auditory Evoked Potential in Research Volunteers”, by Marsic, Berman, Barry, and McCloskey. This study examines the correlation between self-injurious behaviors (suicidal thoughts, self-harm, i.e.) and various tones of loudness stimuli, also known asthe loudness dependence of auditory evoked potential (LDAEP).
