Question description

Sometimes a behavior will be reinforced only in the presence of a particular stimulus.  For example, a pigeon would be reinforced for pushing a lever only when a green light was on.  The green light serves as a discriminative stimulus or an environmental cue that a particular behavior will be reinforced.  Provide a human example of the use of a discriminative stimulus.
