Abstract

“Thirteen rhesus monkeys, seven of which had previously received 1,000 r. of X radiation in spaced doses and six of which were the non-irradiated control group for the radiation experiment, formed a temporal-sequence learning set. Each problem required S to employ the ‘concept’ of serial order to perform at a better-than-chance level, and although the learning of this concept was slow and inefficient, it appears that the monkey can learn to solve serial-order problems similar to problems given to human Ss, by means of the Method of Reconstruction. There were no demonstrable differences between the performances of previously irradiated and control Ss.” From Psyc Abstracts 36:01:1DM25M.
