The differential effects of four training strategies for use in the sheltered workshop 1972 146 The present study was designed to investigate the behavior-modification techniques of modeling and chaining as they might apply to retardate training in an industrial setting. Thirty-two moderately and mildly retarded (IQ 40-60) male and female adult...
The nature and consequences of prefrontal lobotomy 1955 856 The life of every man is filled with problems of such complexity that he might well be awed when he realizes that he is able to cope with them at all. Despite the scope of the task, however, most people have achieved in some measure a working agreeme...
An investigation of certain personality factors as correlates of perceptual responses 1959 45 The problem of defining and explaining perception has challenged psychologists ever since psychology first became a science. It is understood that the stimulation of a sensory end-organ results in the conduction of electrical impulses from the end-or...
An investigation of the possibility of differential effects of color upon human emotions 1958 80 "Color affects our emotional attitudes and our behavior even when we are not aware of it."1 This statement from the pamphlet, Color Planning for School Interiors, exemplifies the viewpoint of the popular books and articles which have been written abo...
Context effects on cross-modality equations of sensory magnitude 1961 75 Individuals are equipped with sense organs which serve as receptors to handle inputs of physical energy. These inputs exist, for example, in the form of light waves and of sound waves. The characteristics of the sensation which may arise depend upon ...
Sensory sensitivity and quality of performance as functions of level of activation 1962 61 Prior to the work of Cannon and Bard, psychologists investigating "emotion" per se concerned themselves almost exclusively with the “conscious elements of emotional experience." Their failure to accord more than honorable mention to the profound phys...
The correlation between a Hullian constant and intelligence 1966 66 In his Principles of Behavior. Hull ( 1943 ) discusses the nature of theories, particularly of his own mathematico-deductive theory of learning. A theory, to Hull, means, "A systematic deductive derivation of the secondary principles of observable ph...
Effect of instructional set on degree of simultaneous brightness contrast 1966 36 Explanations of simultaneous brightness contrast consistent with traditional nativistic and empiricistic points of view have been presented. Evidence relevant to these views has been cited from experiments employing the techniques of electrophysiolog...
An exploratory study of a color association exercise for the assessment of verbal creative ability 1967 35 A Color Association Exercise (CAE) was devised to assess verbal creative ability. Four scales were developed for utilization with the CAE: Originality, Abstraction, Fluency, and Elaboration. When administered to 173 adolescent students, the Color Ass...
A replicational study of the correlation between a Hullian constant and intelligence 1967 48 Hull suggests an empirical constant which he describes as a measure of individual differences in learning ability. If this constant is indeed a measure of differences in learning ability, then a correlation should exist between this constant and inte...
Simultaneous brightness contrast as a function of practice 1968 68 The present investigation was addressed to the question of whether or not the illusion of simultaneous brightness contrast is susceptible to a practice effect as are the Poggendorff, Zoellner, and Mueller-Lyer illusions. A nativistic, or peripheral, ...
