Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Statistics
  • Cognition
  • Social psychology

Edmund Fantino mainly focuses on Reinforcement, Stimulus, Social psychology, Delay reduction hypothesis and Statistics. His Reinforcement research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Audiology and Operations research. Edmund Fantino has included themes like Developmental psychology and Conditioning in his Stimulus study.

His study in the field of Operant conditioning is also linked to topics like Reduction. While the research belongs to areas of Cognitive psychology, Edmund Fantino spends his time largely on the problem of Foraging, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Variables. His work deals with themes such as Generality and Artificial intelligence, which intersect with Rate of reinforcement.

His most cited work include:

  • Choice and rate of reinforcement. (473 citations)
  • Choice optimal foraging, and the delay-reduction hypothesis (410 citations)
  • Self-control and general models of choice. (245 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His scientific interests lie mostly in Reinforcement, Social psychology, Statistics, Stimulus and Cognitive psychology. His study looks at the relationship between Reinforcement and topics such as Foraging, which overlap with Operant conditioning. His Social psychology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Base rate fallacy, Cognition, Conjunction fallacy, Generality and Preference.

His research in the fields of Matching overlaps with other disciplines such as Duration, Interval and Terminal. In the subject of general Stimulus, his work in Mixed schedule is often linked to Uncorrelated, thereby combining diverse domains of study. His Delay reduction hypothesis research includes elements of Reinforcement schedules and Control theory.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Reinforcement (46.11%)
  • Social psychology (37.13%)
  • Statistics (20.36%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2004-2015)?

  • Social psychology (37.13%)
  • Reinforcement (46.11%)
  • Cognitive psychology (17.37%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

His primary areas of investigation include Social psychology, Reinforcement, Cognitive psychology, Stimulus and Developmental psychology. The concepts of his Social psychology study are interwoven with issues in Stimulus control, Value, Base rate fallacy and Preference. His Reinforcement study also includes fields such as

  • Statistics that connect with fields like Preference,
  • Reinforcement schedules most often made with reference to Conditioning.

His Cognitive psychology study incorporates themes from Sunk costs, Cognition and Affect. In general Stimulus study, his work on Stimulus change often relates to the realm of Uncorrelated, thereby connecting several areas of interest. In general Developmental psychology, his work in Impulsivity is often linked to Scalar expectancy linking many areas of study.

Between 2004 and 2015, his most popular works were:

  • The sunk cost effect in pigeons and humans (80 citations)
  • Commodity specific rates of temporal discounting: Does metabolic function underlie differences in rates of discounting? ☆ (80 citations)
  • Increased False-Memory Susceptibility After Mindfulness Meditation (62 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Statistics
  • Cognition
  • Social psychology

His main research concerns Reinforcement, Social psychology, Cognitive psychology, Sunk costs and Stimulus. His study in Reinforcement is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Conditioning and Preference. His Social psychology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Value and Moral responsibility.

His Cognitive psychology research includes themes of Addictive behavior, Flourishing, Cognition and Thriving. His Sunk costs study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Developmental psychology, Discriminative model and Affect. His work on Stimulus change as part of general Stimulus study is frequently connected to Uncorrelated, Visual perception and Cost effectiveness, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them.
