The purpose of the study was to compare the relative effectiveness of non-reward, physical barriers, and punishment on the progression of behavior from one habit to another, and on subsequent tendencies to regress to the original habit. The factor of effort in the acquisition of the second habit...
Using a lever-pressing apparatus, the authors tested the effect of cortical lesions in the visual, parietal, frontal, and pre-frontal areas on light-aversion behavior in the rat. Pre- and post-operative tests were made. All lesions were bilateral. Destruction of the visual areas in the occipital...
The performance of four rhesus monkeys in the acquisition of differentiated response to the visual attributes of form or color in a single stimulus was studied. The animals were required to match a sample-object with one of two to five other samples simultaneously presented. A stepwise training...
