Abstract : The rate of emission of palmar skin potential responses in human subjects can be brought under the control of external stimuli correlated with different schedules of operant reinforcement. Successful discriminations are formed between reinforcement and nonreinforcement conditions, and differential rates of response are observed by alternating the scheduling of intermittent reinforcement.
