Numerous studies, falling within the general area of conditioning and learning, have been primarily concerned with identifying neurophysiological events underlying learned behavior. It is hoped that a knowledge of such events will provide a better understanding of the complexity of these phenomena. The present investigation is an attempt to determine whether peripheral autonomic mechanisms are essential to the development of differential motor acts. In the light of available evidence, it is hypothesized that chemical blocking of peripheral autonomic responses will not prevent development of differential motor responses to differentially reinforced stimuli.
