The project is concerned with the development and implementation of a procedure for the evaluation, reclassification, and the retrieval of the experimental evidence in psychology. Based on an empirical vocabulary, and utilizing an analysis of experimental reports into the specific operations carried out by the experimenter, analysis sheets and a notational code were developed, and are now being refined in use. The analysis sheet provides for succinct statement of each variable that enters into the experiment. The notation permits statement in coded form of the specific operations independently of the particular conditions of the experiment. The notational summary of the operations will provide the basis for reclassification of empirical findings. Using the bibliographic methods of a parallel research at the University of New Mexico, the original literature on the topic sensory preconditioning was evaluated and is now being summarized, as well as a randomly selected sample of approximately 300 papers.
