The authors comment on the behavioral model of gambling proposed by professors Jeffrey N. Weatherly and Mark R. Dixon. They argue that it was not clear whether the model covers both gambling and pathological gambling. They assert that gamblers select between small and large probabilistic reinforces. They emphasize that such proposed framework is an approximation of an account of gambling because it does not seek critical elements such as genetics, Pavlovian condition and nonhuman animal models.
