Abstract

Thirty-five female albino rats were tested for evidence of frustration effect in goal box one activity and latency in runway two in each of five reinforcement groups. The general hypothesis, that activity in goal box one and latency in runway two in the postshift phase was confirmed (r=.20). Specific hypotheses were difficult to interpret due to highly significant interactions. Recommendations for a repeat of the study were made along with suggestions regarding controls for extraneous sources of variability.
