The effects of trial and cycle durations on automaintenance in the pigeon 1976 131 Thirty-six naive pigeons were assigned to groups which differed with respect to trial duration (6, 12, 24, 30, 48, or 96 sec), cycle duration (30, 60, or 120 sec), and, consequently, with respect to the ratio of trial to cycle (.20, .40, .80, or 1.00...
Concurrent schedules of reinforcement : the effects of an upper limit of reinforcement availability on changeover behavior 1976 139 Pigeons partition total response output and time between both schedules of a concurrent variable-interval pair. A large amount of data has been reported which suggests that responses and time are partitioned so that they are proportional to the relat...
The effects of varying the trace interval, cs duration, and inter-reinforcement interval on key pecking in the pigeon 1975 111 When the illumination of a response key is followed by grain presentation, pigeons come to peck at the lighted key. Stimulus-reinforcer relationships in this procedure have been shown to exert a strong influence on the development and maintenance of ...
The effects of varying the duration of grain presentation on negative automaintenance in the pigeon 1973 130 The purpose of this study was to assess the effects of varying hopper duration on negative automaintenance in the pigeon. These effects were assessed in six experimental Ss by exposing them to either two-, four-, or eight-second hopper durations. A f...
Some effects of the interfood interval on schedule-induced drinking 1976 120 Schedule-induced drinking was studied in four male albino rats when food was presented at regular intervals ranging from 15 to 480 secs. Water was available at all times during the course of the experiment. Several measures of schedule-induced drinki...
The effects of signalled reinforcement in multiple schedules of reinforcement 1970 30 In a two-component multiple variable interval schedule of reinforcement, responding in a blue, nonsignalled component was found to be a decreasing, negatively accelerated function of the rate of reinforcement in a red, signalled component. It was cle...
Behavioral contrast and decreasing preference for a multiple-schedule component with reduced response rate 1970 27 When responding in one component of a multiple schedule of reinforcement is suppressed, behavioral contrast, indicated by an increase in response rate, may occur in an alternated, unchanged component. The present study attempted to determine whether ...
Effects of interfood interval on discrete-trial fixed-time schedules 1977 14 The typical pattern of responding generated by a fixed interval schedule of reinforcement consists of a nost reinforcement pause followed by a period of positively accelerated responding. This pattern is consistent with a temporal discrimination inte...
