Comparisons of the workings in
the minds of rats and human beings
as they attempt to escape from the
same difficulties will be reported
by Prof. John F. Shepard,, of the
psychology department, before dele-
gates to the American -Psychologi-
cal association meeting Dec. 29 to
31, at .Iowa State university, at
Iowa City.
The report will deal with findingsI
in rote learning research conducted
by Professor Shepard. The experi-
'ments were conducted in mazes in
which the rats were placed and
similar ones drawn on cylinders for
human beings to run with their
eyes. Care was taken to prevent
fthe human from surveying the
problem as a whole.
Although the data on human re-
actions are still far from complete,
it is already possible to make some
comparisons of thei" methods of
learning and those of rats, says Dr.
Shepard, who has been carrying on
this work in conj unction wvith ad-
vanced classes.
Learn by Rote.
It has been found that, whi'.
neither has any advantage in spe
ofl learning, very definite differ-
ences in procedure have been ob-
served. The rats, according to Dr.
Shepard, show little order in elim-
ination of errors in pathway mazes,
while they seem to learn backward
in broken field problems. Humans,
on the other hand, learn pathway
mazes from both beginning and
end, progressing more rapidly from
section just after the center is
learned last.
As this is only rote learning, no
comparison may thus be drawn be-
