Excerpt: Learning has traditionally been defined as the acquisition of new behavior. Within an operant framework, however, the word learning implies transitional behavior that is progressing towards a steady state (I) . Such transition states may reflect a variety of circumstances and behaviors. For example, a transition state may simply describe the initial acquisition of a lever-press response. Another type of transition state is the change in steady-state behavior that occurs when a single schedule of reinforcement is changed, e.g., from fixed ratio to fixed interval (2). A transition state may also describe the acquisition of more complex sequences of behavior, which. is the focus of the present paper.
