Abstract:

In this experiment young boys and girls were presented with either verbal pain or non pain stimuli contingent or noncontingent on a target response. These stimuli were delivered within an aggressive or nonaggressive setting and with or without affect. The pain stimuli had both a reinforcing and an instigating effect on the behavior of the boys. For the girls, the pain stimuli served a reinforcing function but had a tendency to inhibit overall responding. Although type of setting did not influence the behavior of the children, the stimuli delivered in an affective manner facilitated the responding more than did a non-affective presentation.
