[Extract] Many everyday behaviors are learned and reinforced through the availability of unique rewards, e.g., when we want coffee, we go to Starbucks; but when we want pizza, we know we should go to Pizza Hut instead. The learning of this relation between the presenting stimulus (coffee). choice of where to go (Starbucks) and the outcome (getting coffee, not pizza) can be characterized as condition discriminative choice learning. Research shows the technique of presenting unique rewards makes such learning better and faster, and has great potential to be developed into a training tool to help children and adults learn complex discriminations.
