Operant Conditioning of Visual Fixation in Infants Under Three Intensities of Auditory and Visual Reinforcement.
Dorman, Lynn; And Others
Visual fixation on one of two blank targets was reinforced with either visual or auditory stimuli in one of 3 intensity sequences: (1) low, medium, high; (2) medium, high, low; and (3) high, low, medium. An analysis of variance of learning scores for the 48 14-week-old infants resulted in a significant interaction of intensity and order and in a significant interaction of sex, modality, intensity and order. These results are discussed in terms of the infant's sensitivity within particular learning situations. (Author)
