Delay-improved retention of a difficult task

Delay-improved retention of a difficult task Kindergarten and 3rd-grade boys learned a series of discriminations with reinforcement delay of 0 to 10 sec. Retention (measured 1 or 8 days later) was facilitated by delay. The delay-retention effect was stronger and more long lasting when the number of trials required for acquisition was increased––by using younger boys or massing training trials. The results are thought to support an explanation of the effect which invokes response-produced cues. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Comparative Psychology American Psychological Association

Abstract

Kindergarten and 3rd-grade boys learned a series of discriminations with reinforcement delay of 0 to 10 sec. Retention (measured 1 or 8 days later) was facilitated by delay. The delay-retention effect was stronger and more long lasting when the number of trials required for acquisition was increased––by using younger boys or massing training trials. The results are thought to support an explanation of the effect which invokes response-produced cues.
