OPEN ECONOMY

an experimental model utilized in operant-conditioning experiments wherein a living being's ingestion of water or food comprises not just that which is given during experimental trials, but additionally substitutional quantities given independently of behavior in the home cage. This guarantees that a specific degree of body weight, or some other gauge of deprivation, is managed.

OPEN ECONOMY: "The open economy design left too much room for error as far as the research panel was concerned."
