Effects of postnatal experience on avoidance, shock sensitivity and open-field behavior of two selectively bred strains of rats
The effects of postnatal experience on avoidance, shock sensitivity, and open-field behavior were investigated in the Roman high avoidance (RHA/Lu) and the Roman low avoidance (RLA/Lu) selectively bred strains of rats.
Qualitative differences in the effects of food and water on learned behavior
Experimental interest for the present research stemmed from the traditionally accepted notion that qualitatively different reinforcers, such as food and water, have similar effects on learning. The present investigation ...
An investigation of the role of individual words in the comprehension of connected discourse
Two experiments exploring the role of individual words in reading comprehension are reported. In the first experiment one group of subjects processed text for comprehension and another attempted retention of text words. ...
Effects of d-amphetamine sulfate and UCS-levels on one-way avoidance behaviour of two selectively bred strains of rat
Two experiments were carried out involving 40 animals of RHA/Lu and RLA/Lu strains in a one-way active avoidance situation. Subjects were tested for avoidance conditioning and activity with seven behavioural measurements ...
The development of hypothesis testing behaviour in children
This experiment investigated whether six, eight, and ten year-old children are capable of simultaneously using more than one hypothesis at a time, or whether children can test only one at a time in a discrimination learning ...
The influence of set on the discriminability of letters
Four experiments were carried out to examine the effect of set on the discriminability of letters and words. Arrays were used containing two words and two nonwords, in which each word was identical in lettering to a nonword ...
Electroconvulsive shock-induced amnesia: an investigation of the reinstatement effect
Three experiments were conducted to investigate the reinstatement effect, in which amnesia has been reported following the pairing of a noncontingent footshock and ECS. In experiment I the possibility that a FS-ECS combination ...
Northwestern Ontario Indian childrens' [sic] scores on the WISC in relation to the normative population.
Because Indian children of Northwestern Ontario attend schools designed for children of white, North-American families, they are frequently given the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children. This research was undertaken ...
The relationship of leadership dimensions under conditions of stress
The present research examined the relationship between two leadership test, the Least-Preferred Co-Worker (LPC) scale and the Leadership Opinion Questionnaire (LOQ). The two instruments are claimed to measure two conceptually ...
Sensation seeking: cognitive and psychophysical correlates
The large body of research on exploratory behaviour, early isolation, sensory deprivation, and sensory overload has suggested the hypothesis that organisms seek an optimal level of stimulation from their environment. ...
