  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • The effects of delay-to-reinforcement, response requirement and schedule duration on performance under fixed-ratio schedules

    Harris, Aimee Rebecca (University of Waikato, 2011)
    Experiment 1 examined the effects of delay-to-reinforcement on between-ratio pausing in multiple fixed-ratio 5 fixed-ratio 5 schedules. In one component the reinforcer was delivered immediately on completion of the ratio, ...
  • 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 ...
  • Solvent abuse in New Zealand: Descriptive data

    Britt, Eileen F. (University of Waikato, 1986)
    The aims of this study were to develop and evaluate an assessment procedure and to use this instrument to gather descriptive data on solvent abuse in New Zealand. The Solvent Abuse Questionnaire (SAQ) was devised to identify ...
  • Visual discrimination and object/picture recognition in hens

    Railton, Renee Caron Richards (University of Waikato, 2011)
    Eight experiments were conducted to examine different aspects of hen’s visual behaviour, and to assess whether hens responded to photographs in the same way they do to the real objects that were depicted in the photographs. ...
