BEHAVIOR OF THE CHIMPANZEE ON A COMPLEX MULTIPLE SCHEDULE
AIR FORCE MISSILE DEVELOPMENT CENTER HOLLOMAN AFB NM
Pagination or Media Count:
The report describes chimpanzee behavior on a four component, three lever multiple schedule. The component schedules included the Sidman avoidance procedure with a concurrent discriminated avoidance feature on a second lever, fixed ratio performance for food, differential reinforcement of low rate for water requiring a dual response chain, and a symbol discrimination task for continuous food reinforcement using three levers. The advantages of employing this type of schedule for evaluating the effects of exposure to space flight conditions are discussed.
