Abstract

49 1st-grade boys were variously exposed to social deprivation or social satiation, and were subsequently either socially reinforced or nonsocially reinforced. In a probability learning paradigm, only those Ss who had been socially deprived and then socially reinforced matched input or maximized. Results are interpreted in terms of social-drive theory. Implications for the development of self-mediated reinforcement are discussed. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved).
