Schedule-controlled behaviors as determinants of drug response
Schedule-controlled performances began to be used in assessing the behavioral effects of drugs because of practical advantages over other techniques for studying behavior. Schedule-controlled behavior is, however, of fundamental importance in behavioral pharmacology. It has been found repeatedly that the effects of many drugs depend critically upon the patterns of responding engendered by different schedule contingencies. These dependencies of the effects of drugs on schedule-controlled behavior occur because ongoing behavior is itself an important determinant of drug action.—Morse, W. H.
