Breed differences in the dog's emotional behavior. by Helen Mahut( )

2 editions published in 1955 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Recent theoretical discussions of emotion and motivation reveal a consistent emphasis on the learnable aspects of emotional behavior, and a corresponding neglect of the biological or constitutional factors. This is particularly true with respect to discussions concerning the nature of fear. There is no doubt that the motivational processes which underlie fear involve learning. Fears related to some situations or objects can be acquired, and even become more or less permanent, as a result of a specific event."--
The effect of stimulus position on visual discrimination by the rat. by Helen Mahut( )

2 editions published in 1952 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Pattern vision in the rat bas been most effectively studied by a jumping method devised by Lashley (1930). This procedure requires the rat to jump at one of two cards bearing the patterns to be discriminated. On the basis of Laehley⁰́₉s extensive anatomical and behavioural studies it has been assumed that the cards fall within the rat⁰́₉s binocular field of vision and, consequently, that they are seen as a whole at the time when the visual patterns begin to influence behaviour during discrimination learning. Ehrenfreund (1948), however, thought that the rat⁰́₉s effective field, in the Lashley jumping apparatus, might be limited to the lower margin of the cards, and has demonstrated this experimentally in certain conditions of training. Since Ehrenfreund⁰́₉s data have been interpreted as bearing on the current continuity-noncontinuity controversy concerning the nature of learning, his experiment is of general importance. Ehrenfreund trained his rats on a modified Lashley jumping apparatus to discriminate between an upright and an inverted triangle in two differing experimental situations. In one condition, the triangles were raised eight centimetres above the bottom margin of the cards. The platform from which the rats jumped, as in the usual procedure, remained level with the platform on which they found food. In the second, the platform was also raised, so that the rats were jumping at the centre of the cards where the triangles were now located. ..."--

The founder of the Polish Solidarity union continues the story of the struggle with the Communist leadership and follows events until the Communists pull out in 1989.
