The learning of incidental cues by rhesus monkeys
AbstractThis study on 18 monkeys indicates that an incidental peripheral cue can have a definite effect on subsequent learning problems in which the cue is relevant. The peripheral cue always accompanied the primary positive cue in original learning. If it were subsequently used as a positive cue, performance was facilitated; if it were used as a negative cue, performance was retarded. From Psyc Abstracts 36:01:1EJ59B.
