Abstract:

Response latency was examined during learning set performance of eight highly sophisticated monkeys. Latency was relatively very long on Trial 1 of each problem and uniformly short during Trials 2 to 6. There was no difference in latency on Trial 2 following correct response to A and incorrect response to B- Trial 1 responses. For the second block of problems, where performance was stable, the correlation coefficient between per cent correct responses and latency on Trials 2 to 6 for the eight Ss was 0.86. Author
