  • Animal olfactory detection of human diseases: Guidelines and systematic review

    Edwards, Timothy L.; Browne, Clare Melody; Schoon, Adee; Cox, Christophe; Poling, Alan (Elsevier, 2017)
    Animal olfactory detection of human diseases has attracted an increasing amount of interest from researchers in recent years. Because of the inconsistent findings reported in this body of research and the complexity of ...
  • Behavior-based assessment of the auditory abilities of brushtail possums

    Osugi, Mizuho; Foster, T. Mary; Temple, William; Poling, Alan (JEAB/Psychology, 2011)
    Brushtail possums (Trichosurus vulpecula) were trained to press a right lever when a tone was presented (a tone-on trial) and a left lever when a tone was not presented (a tone-off trial) to gain access to food. During ...
  • Delayed matching-to-sample performance of hens: Effects of sample duration and response requirements during the sample

    Foster, T. Mary; Temple, William; William, C.; DeMello, L.R.; Poling, Alan (1995)
    Six domestic hens were trained under a delayed matching-to-sample procedure with red and green keylights as sample and comparison stimuli and a 1.5-s delay interval. The hens were trained to stop pecking the sample stimuli ...
  • Demand equations for qualitatively different foods under fixed-ratioschedules: a comparison of three data conversions

    Foster, T. Mary; Sumpter, Catherine E.; Temple, William; Flevill, Amanda; Poling, Alan (Society for the Experimental Analysis of Behavior, Inc, 2009)
    Concurrent schedules were used to establish 6 hens’ preferences for three foods. The resulting biases suggested wheat was preferred over honey-puffed and puffed wheat, and puffed wheat was the least preferred food. The ...
  • The matching law

    Poling, Alan; Edwards, Timothy L.; Weeden, Marc A.; Foster, T. Mary (Southern Illinois University, 2011)
    This article introduces the quantitative analysis of choice behavior by describing a number of equations developed over the years to describe the relation between the allocation of behavior under concurrent schedules of ...
