Abstract

24 MALE HOLTZMAN RATS WERE TRAINED IN 2 SD-S$M$UP DISCRIMINATION EXPERIMENTS TO ASSESS THE EFFECTS OF AN SD POSTPONEMENT CONTINGENCY DURING S$M$UP AND TEMPORAL REGULARITY OF S$M$UP DURATION. EXP. I SHOWED THAT DISCRIMINATION IS MARKEDLY FACILITATED BY THE PRESENCE OF AN SD POSTPONEMENT CONTINGENCY OF EITHER FIXED OR VARIABLE DURATION. EXP. II SHOWED THAT VARIABLE DURATION S$M$UP PERIODS IN A NONCONTINGENT SCHEDULE CAN ENHANCE FORMATION OF AN OPERANT DISCRIMINATION. THESE EFFECTS WERE ATTRIBUTED TO DIFFERENCES IN THE PROBABILITY OF ADVENTITIOUS REINFORCEMENT OF S$M$UP BEHAVIOR BY SD EVENTS. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved).
