Learning A Second Response to a Cue as a Function of the Magnitude of the First

Julian Jaynes

(Split into Journal of Comparative Psychology and Behavioral Neuroscience in 1982.)

Abstract:

Rats were trained to life up cards, the three groups being required to lift to different heights. They were then trained to a similar discrimination with a reversal of the cues. In another experiment, following similar original learning animals were required to learn a successive T-maze discrimination. In both experiments the animals whose original learning involved the greatest magnitude of response learned the second task the more rapidly.
