Loving bliss neurochemistry generation and behaviorist theory/operant conditioning re schedules of reinforcement? How? What experiments? In a realistic virtual earth with species?
CURIOUS how to engage a kind of behaviorist theory re schedules of reinforcement (e.g. re Harvard's B.F. Skinner, about whom I've blogged recently in three different blogs) to explain, for example, these three behaviors:
- photo sharing, much from social media, of mostly cat pictures, but pictures in general on smartphone computers, among mostly female musicians at Scottish Country Dancing on Monday evenings in Berkeley,
- warm hug between great long time friends also at SCD, musicians who were sitting next to each other, one female the other male
- photo sharing of grand daughter baby photos in utero on smartphone?
How could behaviorism study this collection of behaviors in terms of pleasurable music-making musician social group generation, community building, social bonding, and even communitas generation re communication - or what could be extrapolated from this in terms of schedules of reinforcement?

Curious how to create an operant conditioning chamber in a realistic virtual world for experimentation with virtual species re learning and schedules of reinforcement (which would also inform or correlate with a physical operant conditioning chamber).
Curious too about the actual-virtual relationship re behaviorist STEM studies and operant conditioning, - and the above example of Scottish Country Dance musicians and pleasurable connecting generation.
Curious too how psychology students at World University and School at home and with their computers could begin to create rigorous behaviorist and operant conditioning learning experiments online and in front of their computers.
Curious too how the WUaS Music School - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/World_University_Music_School - could be a site for further study and research in these regards

This Khan Academy course by Jeff Walsh applies operant conditioning theoretically to humans -
(and he's now a Kaiser Permanente MD), but I'm not sure to what degree this has been shown or proven in the laboratory ...
See, too -
Khan's Jeffrey Walsh, is now a MD ...
Health and Medicine- https://www.khanacademy.org/about/our-content-specialists ...
where this content specialists' emeritus faculty page is a great model for WUaS too.
Since Jeffrey Walsh MD has teaching experience at Khan Academy about operant conditioning and behaviorism, and he's a Kaiser Permanente MD and psychiatrist, I think, I wonder in what ways too WUaS could collaborate with him with regards to some of these questions.
Nation States' World University and School Universities to come (in countries' official languages for free, CC OCW degrees) ...
