each section of the study is written in details that allow for replication. In this study, the researchers described the time of day, the type of design (ABAB), what baseline looked like, what the preference assessment entailed, they described each phase of the reinforcement, what the reinforcement looked like, and exactly what was said during the study. The procedures of the study are described in detail to allow other to try and produce that same results. The article The Relationship Between Intentional Self-Injurious Behavior and the Loudness Dependence of Auditory Evoked Potential in Research Volunteers is not a behavior analytic article. This article does not present the seven dimension of ABA which are determining factors of a behaviorally analytic article. This article is based on a mentalistic perspective, it is using thoughts, feeling and ideas as the targeted behavior in the study. The questionnaire used self-report methods of intentional self-injurious behaviors, they asked questions such as “How you ever thought about attempting to kill yourself (Marsic, Berman, Barry & McCloskey, 2015 )?” this question does not lead to measurable or observable behaviors. In this article conceptually systematic, which is the dimension of ABA that focuses on changes of behavior that are derived from basic principle of behavior ( Cooper, Heron, & Heward, 2007, p. 36) , is not present. This study has not used any form of behavioral intervention to improve socially significant behaviors. For this article to be considered behaviorally analytic, a basic principle such as reinforcement would need to be used to impact the targeted behavior. This article explores the relationship between LDAEP and a history of self-injurious behaviors in a nonclinical population (Marsic, Berman, Barry & McCloskey, 2015).
Analyze why the other article is not behavior analytic. How do you know the seven dimensions are not present?
