Selective learning as a function of differential consummatory activity

, : Selective learning as a function of differential consummatory activity. Psychol Repts 3: 255-258

9 thirsty rats were trained in a T-maze and received 5 ml.of water from a small-diameter drinking tube in one goal box and 5 ml.of water from a large-diameter drinking tube in the other goal box. Duration of consummatory activity was greater in the case of the smaller tube. Mean number of turns to the small tube increased significantly as the training progressed. The results were interpreted as supporting Spence's theory of incentive motivation, particularly with respect to the importance of the fractional antedating goal reaction.
