Abstract

"Confronted with a two-choice task, Ss learned to respond in accordance with the probabilities of alternative outcomes even though they did not recognize the task as a probability situation and attempted to find a lawful solution to the problem. The experimental task consisted of matching geometric designs. On each trial S had to choose between two types of variation as matching a key design. There were six experimental groups which differed in the relative probabilities of the two types of variation being correct . . . " (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved).
