The Envelope Please

I would like to suggest a computation that I don't have the data to
perform. It would be interesting to take the data in the current paper

and compute not just the reinforcement rate, but the "milk rate," taking

the concentration into account, and plot that against both the peak and
the mean behavior rates. My operant conditioning model has a place for
entering the quantity per reinforcing event, and it would be interesting
to see how that figures into the results.

Excellent suggestion! I think it would also be very helpful if Bruce could
show the predictions of the reinforcement model. My guess is that they would
be something like:

Mean Rsp/hour

Now lets see the actual results. The envelope please.
