Abstinence IS recovery in addiction!

We have recorded our first full podcast which discusses the concept of abstinence and how we can construct new habits. Neuroscience, psychology and behaviour analysis are not joining up with their research which means that there are some quite significant gaps to our understanding of addiction and habits. Here we talk about Stimulus-Response learning and dopamine spikes. The type of habit/addiction is...

The Neurological Mechanisms Of Habitual Versus Stress Responding In Eating, Smoking and Online Shopping Behaviours

A working literature review of three topographies (eating, smoking and online shopping) of behaviour, what the evidence suggests, the thoughts it inspires and how this leads to working hypotheses. The relationship between stress & habitual versus goal directed behaviour When actions and outcomes are associated, learning is said to be goal-directed (GD). Conversely, the association between a response and its antecedent stimuli...

A discussion of the role that context plays in habitual responding (smoking, eating & online shopping) and how this relates to both dual-system and rate-correlation theories

Introduction Here we will consider the role of context and the evidence supporting its role in habits such as eating, smoking and online shopping. Most research has focused on eating behaviour; however, we are interested in the findings from eating, smoking and online shopping to understand if the mechanism is indeed standardised for three topographies. This is an important area for research...

Do scent based enrichment activities make dogs tired when compared to traditional walking as a form of exercise? A feasibility naturalistic case study.

For those of you that have been wondering why we are quiet, its because we have been working on academic proposals solidly for the last 9 months and have started a new project in our lab. We want to tell you a little bit about our project (we cannot share data for papers that will be submitted for publication), our reason for...

How To Use Science To Change Behaviour

Behavioural momentum theory (BMT) looks at how persistent a behaviour is in relation to its reinforcement history. The theory states that reinforcers increase the persistence of behaviour in the face of disrupters, distraction or discontinuation of reinforcement. The persistence of a target response is increased by alternative reinforcers that are presented in that situation regardless of whether they are contingent on that...
