  • Variable ratio reinforcement (VR) schedules deliver reinforcement after a random number of responses (based upon a predetermined average)
    • Example: VR3 = on average, every third response is reinforced
    • Lab example: VR10 = on average, a rat is reinforced for each 10 bar presses
    • Real world example: VR37 = a roulette player betting on specific numbers will win on average one every 37 tries (on a U.S. roulette wheel, this would be VR38)
