Abstract: Manipulation of unconditioned Motivating Operations (MOs) such as pain, food and water deprivation and the lowering of body weight can be potentially harmful and distressing to animals. Past research that has manipulated such MOs in order to motivate animals to respond for reinforcers is reviewed and directions for future research are discussed. The focus is on the extent that potentially distressing MO's need to be altered in order to change motivation for reinforcers in animals. In addition research directions for investigating alternative MOs that can motivate animals to respond for reinforcers are discussed.
