Joint Control for Dummies: An Elaboration of Lowenkron’s Model of Joint (Stimulus) Control

Article

Abstract

The following paper describes Lowenkron’s model of joint (stimulus) control. Joint control is described as a means of accounting for performances, especially generalized performances, for which a history of contingency control does not provide an adequate account. Examples are provided to illustrate instances in which joint control may facilitate performance of a task.

Key words
