Abstract : In two different experimental situations the effects of cooperative responding by two subjects (Ss) were studied on a fixed ratio schedule of reinforcement. Similar results were seen in both experiments. It was observed that the rate of responding of one S is a function of the rate of the other S. As the rate of the first S increases the rate of the second S decreases. This relation is seen most clearly in the second experiment in which the rate of the second S (a clock) was a known constant value. (Author)
