“The Serial Multiple Visual Discriminatory Apparatus was used to explore the possibility of training animals to solve five different types of visual discrimination problems in a single run. The five problems were: vertical versus horizontal striae, brightness, inkblot figures, triangles versus crosses, and a conditional problem. Four white, male, albino rats were trained in approximately 30 days to make these discriminations. Details of the training method were presented and suggestions were given with regard to shortening the training time. The solution of five successive and different visual discrimination problems in a single run represents the maximum reported to date on this apparatus.” From Psyc Abstracts 36:01:1EJ17K.
