SNIFFY THE RAT EXPERIMENTS

SNIFFY THE RAT EXPERIMENTS

Order Description

Write up descriptions for each experiment – note the IV, the DV, and (using the data from the book), explain in you own words what happened (describe patterns and such
you note within the results). Add a statement (in your own words) that describes what the results indicate in the bigger picture (e.g., if you note that Sniffy stopped
responding with a single shock [punisher], what does that tell you about behavior in general?
Write each up as a “mini experiment”.
