Septal lesions lower responding under fixed-ratio schedules of reinforcement.

Abstract

Albino Sprague-Dawley rats with complete septal lesions and rats with control operations were studied under fixed-ratio (FR) schedules of reinforcement. Both groups were trained for 10 sessions each under FR 10, 20, 40, 60, 80, and 100. In contrast to findings from progressive FR studies and some simple FR studies, septal lesions resulted in lower overall… (More)
