Episode 4 - Novel Behavior and Lag Schedules

In this week's episode, we review articles on novel behavior.  Diana gushes over lag schedules and their effects on novel architectural features in children's play, Rob demands 21st-century learning for America, and Jackie wishes for her very own block building kit.  Then the gang gets cerebral in a discussion about creativity as behavior.  All that and the home version of the Novel Vocalizations Game!
