B.F. Skinner  
Operant conditioning – a form of learning whereby a response increases in frequency as a result of its being followed by reinforcement
  • When behaviors are followed by desirable consequences, they tend to increase in frequency
  • When behaviors do not produce results, they typically decrease and may even disappear altogether
