Book Description

Using a consistent Skinnerian perspective; Behavior Analysis and Learning: A Biobehavioral Approach 6th Edition (PDF) provides an advanced introduction to the principles of behavior analysis and learned behaviors; covering a full range of principles from the basic respondent and operant conditioning through applied behavior analysis into the cultural design. The textbook uses neurophysiological; Darwinian; and biological theories and research to inform B. F. Skinner’s philosophy of radical behaviorism.

The 6th edition expands focus on neurophysiological mechanisms and their relation to the experimental analysis of behavior; providing updated studies and references to reflect current expansions and changes in the field of behavior analysis. By bringing together ideas from neuroscience; epigenetics; and behavior analysis under a selectionist framework; this PDF etextbook facilitates understanding of behavior at genetic; environmental; and neurophysiological levels. This “grand synthesis” of behavior; neurobiology and neuroscience roots behavior firmly in biology. The ebook includes special sections; “Focus On;” “New Directions;” “On the Applied Side;” “Note On;” and “Advanced Section;” which enhance college student learning and provide greater insight on specific topics.

This ebook is a valuable resource for graduate and advanced undergraduate college students in psychology or other behavior-based disciplines; especially behavioral neuroscience. For additional resources to use alongside the textbook; consult the Companion Website at
