Stimuli play an important role in the behaviors we demonstrate on a daily basis. Through the processes of reinforcement and punishment, we can observe how the addition or removal of stimuli can impact the future occurrence of behavior. A painful stimulus can be involved in positive punishment and negative reinforcement, and a desired stimulus can be involved in negative punishment and positive reinforcement.
