The purpose of the experiment was to determine whether the white rat may be trained respond to tone. The respiratory response of the animal was conditioned, an electric shock to the tail serving as the unconditioned and the tone produced by a vacuum-tube oscillator as the "conditioned" stimulus....
A six-unit inclined-plane apparatus is described. It is pointed out that the apparatus is readily mastered, that it is sufficiently reliable for the measurement of individual differences ( = .97), that it is equally useful for work with blind and seeing animals, that performance can easily be...
The authors observed the behavior of 165 female guinea pigs continuously throughout 449 reproductive cycles and 623 oestrous periods. They found the average duration of the reproductive cycle to be 16 days, 6 hours, with a coefficient of variability of 6.1%. Oestrus, defined as the period of...
