The Effects on Learning of Varying Degrees of Punishment
The present investigation was undertaken to verify the findings of Tuckman on the effects of varied degrees of intensity of punishment on learning and also, to verify the findings of Lorge on intensified punishment. In this experiment a different kind of punishment was used, namely sound. Lorge used an electric shock to intensify punishment and Tuckman used the deprivation of one-, or two-, three-, or four-tenths of a cent. The investigator was also anxious to corroborate Dr. Thorndike's and Miss Crawford's ' work on the spread of the after-effects to surrounding punished connections.
