Oddity Preference by Mental Retardates
Dickerson, Donald J.
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, 10, 1, 28-32, Aug '70
Three groups of severely retarded and three groups of mildly retarded individuals responded to a series of five 10-trial oddity problems under nonreward conditions. Results suggest that oddity is a stimulus characteristic to which an approach response is made, independent of its concurrent association with reward, and that stimulus value of oddity differs for mildly and severely retarded Ss.
