21. Top: Illustrations of the types of cardboard plaque used by Blazek and Harlow. Cards used in a given pair differed in color, but not in size of cue. Bottom: The learning-set functions that resulted. The days of practice represent 768 sixtrial discrimination problems. ) This result, in principle, was duplicated by the outcome of a study by Schrier and Harlow (1956) that examined the effects of size of center cues as well as amount of reward. The subjects in this study were cynomolgus monkeys (Macaca irus), and their curves for learning-set formation turned out to be almost absolutely parallel when size of cue was the parameter (Fig.
