Operant Conditioning Chamber (aka Skinner box)
… a laboratory apparatus used in the experimental analysis of behavior to study animal behavior. The operant conditioning chamber was created by B. F. Skinner while he was a graduate student at Harvard University. It is used to study both operant conditioning and classical conditioning. An operant conditioning chamber permits experimenters to study behavior  conditioning (training) by teaching a subject animal to perform certain  actions (like pressing a lever) in response to specific stimuli, like a  light or sound signal. When the subject correctly performs the behavior,  the chamber mechanism delivers food or another reward. In some cases,  the mechanism delivers a punishment for incorrect or missing responses.  With this apparatus, experimenters perform studies in conditioning and  training through reward/punishment mechanisms…
