Abstract:

Six rhesus monkeys were given 120 discrimination problems. Each problem lasted either four, seven, or ten trials. Following the discrimination trials either the positive or the negative stimulus was retained, paired with a neutral stimulus, and presented for one critical trial. The positive stimuli were responded to on 95.6 of the critical trials the negative stimuli were avoided on 57.2 of the trials. Avoidance of the negative stimuli depended upon whether or not they had been responded to, and the number of discrimination trials. Author
