Abstract

In an investigation of spontaneous alternation, 4 groups of albino rats received 2 consecutive trials per day in an E-maze during a 20 day experimental period. Each group consisted of 19 subjects. The subjects were placed on a food or water deprivation schedule and received either a large or a small reward. The results revealed that a large food reward produced more alternation than a small food reward; however, a large water reward produced laess alternation than a small water reward.
