  • Aspects of hens’ visual behaviour

    Weavers, Richard (The University of Waikato, 2000)
    Five experiments were conducted to examine different aspects of hens’ visual behaviour, and to assess whether hens respond to slide images in the same way as they respond to real conspecifics that those slides depict. ...
  • Variables controlling the resurgence of previously reinforced behaviour in hens

    Cleland, Bryce Steven (The University of Waikato, 2000)
    Resurgence is defined as the occurrence of previously reinforced behaviours when reinforcer delivery ceases for a recently reinforced behaviour. In five experiments, variables suggested to control the degree of occurrence ...
  • Concurrent schedule performance of possums: a comparison of two models

    Bron, Angela (The University of Waikato, 2001)
    These experiments examined the behaviour of brushtail possums (Trichosurus vulpecula) under concurrent variable-interval schedules of reinforcement. In the first experiment the lever pressing of six possums resulted in ...
  • Assessing psychophysical abilities in brushtail possums.

    Signal, Tania Dawn (The University of Waikato, 2002)
    In Experiment 1, 6 brushtail possums were trained, using food, to perform a conditional discrimination between flickering (5.00 Hz) and steady lights. A block-wise method of limits procedure was then used to increase flicker ...
  • Effects of sample-set size on delayed-matching-to-sample

    Adamson, Coreen (The University of Waikato, 2002)
    In a series of experiments the discriminative performance of university students was assessed using a Delayed-Matching-to-Sample task. White disks, presented on computer screens, served as stimuli. For the general DMTS ...
