Effects of nonreward in S+ and S- on performance in differential conditioning
108 male albino Holtzman rats, distributed across 4 experiments, received differential conditioning training in a black-white runway discrimination apparatus. Results of the 1st 3 experiments show that greater depression of S+ speeds results from nonreward as compared with small reward in S-. Results of the 4th experiment, in which some Ss received occasional nonreward in S+, are compatible with an incentive-averaging equation developed to account for the effects of occasional small reward in S+.
