Paul Neuman's interests are in behavior analysis. "With the experimental analysis of behavior, behavior is of interest in its own right, and the focus is on the interaction between behavior and the environment (the organism is the locus of the interaction). Other approaches in psychology may use behavioral procedures, but the interest is in what behavior can reveal about some other level of functioning in the organism. This is what the distinction between the science of behavior and the behavioral sciences is all about."
