A Model for Developing and Evaluating Behavioral Technology
What has come to be recognized as a technology of behavior has been developing over the past 30 years or so. As is probably typical of the early years of a new technology’s development, there has been no plan or set of standards guiding this evolution; each contributor has simply brought along his or her history and motivating circumstances. Thus, a handful of basic animal laboratory researchers, a core of academics, a lot of practitioners, and miscellaneous entrepreneurs and interested parties have had assorted impacts on how this technology has progressed.
