Abstract

The phenomenon of sensory pre-conditioning was noted originally by Brogden (3) and, for the purpose of this study, may be described in three parts as follows. In part one, Ss are presented with a number of simultaneous pairings of two neutral stimuli, e.g., bell and light. Following this, one stimulus, for example the bell, is made the CS for an avoidance response. Part three consists of presenting the other stimulus (light) for the purpose of determining to what extent it also will elicit the same response as a result of its prior association with the first.
