Generalized identity matching-to-sample in rats using olfactory stimuli 2009 358 The present study evaluated rats’ performances on an olfactory match-to-sample task. Four rats were trained on an identity match-to-sample (MTS) procedure, with common household spices mixed with sterilized play sand used as stimuli. Digging in a s...
Aging and categorization: using generalized equivalence classes and their characteristics to compare older and younger adults 2009 501 Previous literature has done little to bring together accounts of stimulus equivalence, the transfer of function among stimulus classes, and age-related changes associated with the creation of stimulus classes. This experiment explores these ideas u...
How does extraneous textbook material influence the reading comprehension of normal and impaired college students? 2009 2355 Seductive details are interesting but irrelevant details added to a passage to make it more interesting, and research indicates that such details impair learning and recall of information. Seductive details have traditionally included illustrations...
A competitive NMDA receptor antagonist potentiates the effects of morphine on spatial and discrimination learning 2009 828 NMDA antagonists have been shown to attenuate the development of tolerance to the antinociceptive effects of morphine, but paradoxically, to potentiate the acute effects of morphine in assays of antinociception. In an effort to characterize the effec...
Olfactory matching-to-sample in rats using a novel apparatus 2009 890 The present study used a semi-automated device to test olfactory matching-to-sample in rats. The apparatus was a modified operant chamber with three nose ports that were covered with three independently-operating guillotine doors. The center door...
A study of functional equivalence in rats using class-specific reinforcers and olfactory stimuli 2009 535 Functional equivalence has been demonstrated in some non-human animals using a repeated reversal simple discrimination procedure. The current study addressed the issue of stimulus equivalence in rats using a repeated reversals procedure with class-...
Evaluating equivalence relations in rats using an olfactory matching-to-sample procedure 2009 481 Equivalence classes can be characterized as groups of stimuli which control responding based on relations among members of the class, rather than absolute stimulus features such as shape, size, or color. Formation of equivalence classes often inclu...
Conditional discrimination acquisition in young children : are the facilitative of naming due to stimulus discrimination? 2009 1650 These experiments investigate whether the facilitative effect of naming on the acquisition of conditional discriminations in young children is due to enhancing discrimination of the sample and comparison stimuli or whether naming serves additional ...
