Delay of reward and human verbal learning

Delay of reward and human verbal learning 44 subjects were divided randomly into 2 equal groups. Both were required to learn a verbal maze of 6 pairs of four-place numbers which appeared in a different order on successive trials and with varied left-right positions. Each pair was presented for 6 sec. and in one group an L or R indicating the correct number appeared immediately after this period. With the delay group a blank 6 sec. interval intervened between the removal of the numbers and the appearance of the correct answer. The immediate reward group required significantly less trials and made fewer errors than the delay group in learning this list. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Experimental Psychology: General American Psychological Association

Abstract

44 subjects were divided randomly into 2 equal groups. Both were required to learn a verbal maze of 6 pairs of four-place numbers which appeared in a different order on successive trials and with varied left-right positions. Each pair was presented for 6 sec. and in one group an L or R indicating the correct number appeared immediately after this period. With the delay group a blank 6 sec. interval intervened between the removal of the numbers and the appearance of the correct answer. The immediate reward group required significantly less trials and made fewer errors than the delay group in learning this list.
