Experimental Analysis of Behavior (EAB) is a scientific approach to the study of behavior that is based on the principles of operant conditioning and classical conditioning. It is a systematic and empirical method for understanding and predicting behavior, and it is widely used in the field of behavior analysis.

In EAB, behavior is treated as a response to environmental events, and the goal is to identify the relationships between behavior and the events that precede and follow it. This approach emphasizes the use of controlled experiments to manipulate environmental events and measure the effects on behavior. The data collected in these experiments are then analyzed to determine the rules that govern behavior and to make predictions about future behavior.

EAB has been applied to a wide range of topics, including basic research on learning and memory, the treatment of psychological and behavioral disorders, the improvement of educational practices, and the design of more effective technology and work environments. The principles of EAB are also used in applied settings, such as the development of new training methods, the improvement of safety in the workplace, and the design of more effective advertising and marketing strategies.
