Abstract : The present experiment was undertaken in order to examine the effects of the operation of selective reinforcement upon stimulus discrimination and response differentiation. The independent variable was the amount of disparity between the positive and negative stimuli (Method of Contrasts) during a series of brightness discriminations. The dependent variables consisted of the measurement of response rate and response force of the bar-pressing response. (Author)
