Discrimination-- learning to distinguish among similar, but slightly different, situations. Positive Reinforcer Anything that when applied increases a behavior Usually pretty much the same as a reward but more formally Law of Effect (Thorndike) an evolutionary alternative explanation for operant learning. It holds that behaviors which are rewarded survive; behaviors which are not rewarded do not survive (survival of the fittest response).
