Behavior analysis is a science that studies the behavior of human and non-human organisms. The focus of this science is to understand, explain, describe, and predict behavior. … As a result, many individuals have been trained as practitioners and routinely use this technology to address behavioral needs.
The basic science is called the Experimental Analysis of Behavior (EAB). This is largely a laboratory science that studies the behavior of a variety of species, including rats, pigeons, monkeys, and humans in an attempt to understand how behavior is influenced by environmental events. Over the last three-quarters of a century, this field has accumulated a large and methodologically sophisticated literature that has revealed the basic processes by which behavior is conditioned by environmental experiences. The basic laws of learning are now well established and widely used for both scientific and practical ends by many other disciplines.
The scientific activities of behavior analysis include efforts to extend findings from the basic research literature to everyday circumstances. This branch of the science is called Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), and this large and diverse literature has spawned an effective technology for modifying behavior under widely varying conditions. As a result, many individuals have been trained as practitioners and routinely use this technology to address behavioral needs. These applications are quite diverse.

Several students shared the field of Behavior Analysis they would like to go into.
In this assignment you are to research a field that you did NOT pick in Assignment 2 and discuss why you would not enter this field of behavior analysis. Here are some examples:
• self-injurious behavior
• developmental disabilities
• infant assessment
• organizational performance management
• training and instructional design
• behavioral safety

• behavior toxicology
• behavioral medicine
• computer modeling of behavior and artificially intelligent agents
• decision support systems
• human factors and user interface design
Please note that I have not put page number requirements on any assignments to allow students to express themselves. However if you turn in work that shows minimal effort you will receive a grade that reflects your lack of effort.
