Scarlet Moon Things Co.

Since we've been busy training our pig, Outlaw Josey, we wanted to break down the psychology of learning through Operant Conditioning. We talk about reinforcement, punishment, the difference between punishers and aversives, and the power of shaping. We even test out B.F. Skinner's theory of language acquisition by trying to teach Brian to say a word.

Give us some positive reinforcement:
