Kamin, Brimer, and Black (1963)

2-PROCESS THEORY

Challenge to 2-process theory. Rats avoid shock via shuttle avoidance. Less conditioned suppression after more avoidance trials!

2

Rescorla's 1968 Capture Study

Two groups avoid shock - free operant. One group gets a tone contingent on response one doesn't. Groups w/ tone learn better than group w/o. Avoidance response generates safety signals for ...

Mowrer

4

Generalization decrement

The extent to which old learning is not applied to a novel stimulus.

5

Cook, Brown, Riley (1985)

Let rats choose 1-11 arms, remove rat for 15 min, then put back in. Results -- rats use retrospective then switch halfway to prospective coding.

6

Behavioral mediating response

A response that sheds light on how the individual mediates their behavior (ex: going from one side of shuttle box to other tells you the individual anticipates a shock soon)

7

Strong indication behavior

Behavior that "indicates" that the individual is fearful

Roitblat (1980)

SYMBOLIC DELAYED MATCHING TO SAMPLE

Birds match blue/orange/red (sample stimuli) to vertical/slant/horizontal line (choice stimuli). Birds made more errors on blue/orange than red.

10

Camp, Raymond & Church (1967)

PUNISHMENT
Comparing delay of punishment, punishment intensity. Stronger and more immediate punishment produces better learning.

Clayton's Breakfast study

Birds Wake up in diff rooms -- one with kibble, one with peanuts

Bring different food back than was in their home
