Discrimination Learning Set

Measurement of learning in a primate subject as part of an operant conditioning study. The subject animal is presented with stimuli with no way of predicting which stimuli will be reinforced but with clues needed to respond correctly in the future. The percentage of correct responses in multiple trials of the same animal is a measurement of learning and forms the DLS.
