Palabras clave: Preparación de nado con rescates, Demora del reforzador, Condicionamiento operante, Ratones

Resumen

En este estudio se presentan tres experimentos diseñados para evaluar la capacidad de la preparación de nado con rescates a fin de replicar hallazgos reportados por la literatura sobre condicionamiento operante con preparaciones de operante libre. En los estudios, se exponen ratones a una situación de nado, que puede terminarse si el animal toca un rectángulo en la pared de un contenedor de agua. En general, los tres estudios replican hallazgos prototípicos de la literatura experimental sobre demora señalada y no señalada. En síntesis, el estudio sugiere que la preparación de nado con rescates replica fenómenos producidos con preparaciones de operante libre.
