Studies in the mathematical biophysics of discrimination and conditioning II: Special case: Errors, trials, and number of possible responses

Abstract

A special case of a problem discussed in a previous paper is treated in greater detail. An equation in the three variables, errors, trials and number of possible choices, is developed and compared with the results of an experiment performed under conditions closely approximating those required for the development of the equation. The agreement is excellent.
