Abstract : The paper contains a description of a method for measuring satiation-cosatiation phenomena and presents some results on the reliability of the method. The methods for observing satiation phenomena are characterized by the performance of a response over and over with S deciding when he will stop responding. Ceasing to make the response then tends to inhibit making analogous responses as well (cosatiation).
