Abstract : Lashley-Wade's and Grice's experiments, in which rats were pretrained to jump to or away from a single circle and then tested on a size-discrimination, were repeated. It was shown that such pretraining involves the learning of a brightness-discrimination between two stimuli--the dark, blank door, and the brighter circle--and that Grice's results therefore are not critical for Lashley and Wade's theoretical position.
