Studied discriminated behavior in 15 male and 21 female newborn beagle puppies. Ss were trained on a successive tactile discrimination. After stable performance was acquired on the discrimination task, cues were either changed (generalization testing) or reversed (reversal training). Results indicate that the discriminated behavior was under excitatory control of the cue correlated with reinforcement but not under inhibitory control of the cue correlated with nonreinforcement.
