Delprato, Dennis J.; And Others
American Journal of Mental Deficiency, v89 n3 p267-74 Nov 1984

Results showed that discrimination performance was more efficient in the experimental condition (reinforcement located near the correct cue) than the control condition (reinforcement in common central location).
