Four pigeons responded in concurrent chained schedules in which variable-interval (VI) 60-s schedules were arranged in the initial link. In Experiment 1, VI and fixed-interval (FI) schedules of equal mean reinforcement rates were arranged in the terminal link. Response rates were higher in the initial link leading to VI terminal link. Under the prefeeding test, the initial-link response rates… CONTINUE READING
