The purpose of the present experiment was to compare the performance of rats in a win-shift task and a win-stay task in a radial arm maze. To this end, three experiments were conducted using a variety of procedures. In general, the win-shift task required the rats to choose the unvisited arms and the win-stay task required the rats to return the visited(More)
