Abstract:

Rats were trained to press a T-bar handle of a response lever through an arc of at least 23.62 degrees but no greater than 28.76 degrees Lever Position 5. This behavior was evaluated immediately following five minutes exposure to each of the following positive G values 2, 5, 10, 15, 20. The behavior was not influenced at the lower G values. At the higher G values, the leverpressing rate decreased, but the percentage of lever-presses made to Position 5 remained the same. Author
