Conditioned inhibition and avoidance learning


, : Conditioned inhibition and avoidance learning. Psychol Repts 4: 547-552

Some writers claim to have provided empirical support for certain apparently paradoxical consequences which arise out of Hull's use of the concept of inhibition. An alternative explanation of these experiments based on an avoidance learning experiment with 5 Ss in each of 2 groups was carried out as a way of overcoming presumed difficulties. One procedure, equally open to objections, confirmed their findings. A 2d technique, which avoided these objections, failed to support earlier findings. The criticisms raised by Gleitman, et al. (Psychol. Rev., 1954, 61, 23-33.) against Hull's use of inhibitory concepts were not refuted.
