    J Exp Anal Behav 84:167-83. 2005
    ..An equation that included both the ratio of the rates of obtaining reinforcers and the ratio of the rates of earning reinforcers described the results from all conditions from each experiment...

    Behav Processes 73:13-21. 2006
    ..These results shows that the effect of the ratio of the sum of the rates of earning stay and switch reinforcers results from processes operating at the alternative, rather than from processes operating at both alternatives...
