Question:

Explain the difference between positive and negative reinforcement.

Morgan E.
Answer:

While positive and negative reinforcement are both facets of classical conditioning, positive reinforcement aims to increase the desired behavior by presenting a stimulus while negative reinforcement increases the desired behavior by removing an undesirable stimulus. Negative reinforcement is often confused with the concept of punishment, but the key difference is that punishment is intended to decrease undesirable behavior rather than increase desirable behavior.
