1991 - Fellow of the American Psychological Association (APA)
Frances K. McSweeney mainly focuses on Reinforcement, Developmental psychology, Cognitive psychology, Habituation and Classical conditioning. Her work on Rate of reinforcement as part of general Reinforcement study is frequently connected to Session, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them. Her work in Developmental psychology covers topics such as Audiology which are related to areas like Variable interval.
Frances K. McSweeney has included themes like Contrast, Social psychology and Behavioral contrast in her Cognitive psychology study. Her Habituation research is under the purview of Neuroscience. Her Classical conditioning research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Conditioned behavior, Operant conditioning and Sensitization.
Her scientific interests lie mostly in Reinforcement, Developmental psychology, Audiology, Behavioral contrast and Habituation. Frances K. McSweeney combines subjects such as Schedule and Statistics with her study of Reinforcement. Her studies in Developmental psychology integrate themes in fields like Conditioning and Operant conditioning.
Her study looks at the relationship between Audiology and fields such as Social psychology, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems. Her Behavioral contrast study which covers Extinction that intersects with Contrast. While the research belongs to areas of Habituation, she spends her time largely on the problem of Cognitive psychology, intersecting her research to questions surrounding Classical conditioning.
Frances K. McSweeney mainly investigates Habituation, Reinforcement, Developmental psychology, Audiology and Cognitive psychology. Her Habituation research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Stimulus, Task, Cognition, Operant conditioning and Extinction. Her study explores the link between Operant conditioning and topics such as Classical conditioning that cross with problems in Cognitive science.
In the field of Reinforcement, her study on Rate of reinforcement overlaps with subjects such as Variable. Her Rate of reinforcement research includes themes of Statistics, Arithmetic mean and Preference. Her Developmental psychology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Variable interval and Behavioral contrast.
Her primary areas of study are Habituation, Reinforcement, Classical conditioning, Cognitive psychology and Operant conditioning. The Habituation study combines topics in areas such as Stimulus and Cognition. The various areas that Frances K. McSweeney examines in her Stimulus study include Social psychology, Psychological review and Audiology.
Frances K. McSweeney combines topics linked to Developmental psychology with her work on Reinforcement. Frances K. McSweeney interconnects Conditioned behavior and Cognitive science in the investigation of issues within Operant conditioning. Her research in Neuroscience intersects with topics in Conditioning and Rate of reinforcement.
