In fact, the argument might be made that the rat or similar mammal is a better subject than the primate for studying the development with age of some of the fundamental learning processes such as acquisition and extinction of simple instrumental responses, acquired drives and rewards, stimulus generalization, and the like, because its behavior is uncluttered by higher mental processes (such as those characterizing monkeys and man) that often mask the simpler underlying processes. The ultimate answers to the problems at hand, of course, do not stem from single studies on any one species but, rather, depend on the cumulative accrual of research knowledge from many species, including man.
