Two monkeys (Macaca mulatta) were trained to press a key after onset of a tone and to release it after a 1-sec fixed foreperiod terminated by a light. The effects of imposing temporal contingencies on key release reaction times were determined by reinforcing only those releases whose latencies from the light fell within a "payoff band", two time limits 50(More)
The present study measured unimanual kinesthetic discrimination for the right and left thumb angular position of male and female right handers without left handed relatives. Each subject's discrimination threshold and constant error were obtained by the Method of Constant Stimuli. Subjects either made an active movement in assessing the standard thumb angle(More)
Examined the applicability of EMG biofeedback to alleviating subjectively experienced test-taking anxiety along with the effects of relaxation training on locus of control. The Achievement Anxiety Test (AAT) was administered to 271 freshman psychology students. Students whose scores indicated high levels of test anxiety were invited to participate.(More)

Two monkeys (M. mulatta) were trained to press a telegraph key after onset of a tone and release it quickly in response to a subsequent light or click stimulus occurring after a variable interval. After training first with a fixed time limit on response latency for key release and then with a continuously adjusting limit, reaction time to click was 160 msec(More)
Using the Method of Constant Stimuli, difference limens were obtained for lifted weights of 50 to 200 gm. 184 college students were assigned to one of four experimental conditions resulting from the combination of two modes of stimulus presentation with whether the preferred or non-preferred hand was used to judge the standard weight.
