An Analysis of Light-Induced Retroactive Inhibition in Pigeon Short-Term Memory
Roberts, William A.; Grant, Douglas S.
Journal of Experimental Psychology: Animal Behavior Processes, 4, 3, 219-36, Jul 78
Grant and Roberts found that houselight presented throughout the delay period on a delayed matching-to-sample task caused pigeons to demonstrate a much lower level of accuracy than was found when the delay was spent in darkness. A series of experiments was carried out to examine possible mechanisms responsible for this light-induced retroactive inhibition (RI). (Editor)
