Hence, manipulation of irrelevant white chips did not suppress discrimination learning, and the contiguity relationship was all that seemed to matter in these situations. Schuck went on to demonstrate that changes in response can have 28 Donald R. Meyer, F. Robert Treichler, and Patricia M. Meyer some other notable effects. To do this, he designed cards with strips of color cue along one edge. In his main experiment, his monkeys had been trained to push the cards away from them; this response had been enforced by narrow metal guides and pins that held the two discriminanda.

This result suggested that the choices were controlled by sampling that preceded the response, and that the designer of displays could thus ignore what happens at the moment of response. Therefore, at this point, the proper strategy appeared to be to concentrate upon the study of the consequences of manipulation of the cues before the choice response occurred. A subsequent development, however, changed our mind, for, in some work by Sheridan et al. (1962), we found that some cue changes oc- 1.
