Allyson Russell PSY 552 – Lab 002 Lab 2 We began our second lab by forming groups and meeting the pigeons which we would be using for our research. After a process of elimination each group chose their pigeon and recorded its specific number of identification. Each group then placed newspaper down on their work  station, put on gloves, and retrieved the pigeon and its cage to being our first experiment. After  groups had placed their pigeons at their work stations we took a few minutes to get to know our  birds and Jacob began to go over exactly what we would be doing. Once Jacob had gone over our instructions he then handed us a clicker and a cup of feed  which we would be using throughout the experiment. As a group we now needed to assign a time keeper, a watcher, and a shaper. Once each member had been assigned a position we began our  experiment. We began our experiment by watching the general behavior of the pigeon over a 5  minute period with 15 second intervals. Every 15 seconds we would observe and record each  behavior and the amount of time the pigeon would repeat the behavior. After this 5 minute  period we then moved on to the next phase of the experiment, feed cup and clicker training. Each group was given 15 minutes to condition their pigeon to move its head up or down at the sound  of the clicker and receive food. Once each group felt as though they had conditioned their bird  we then moved on to the next step, shaping. Groups were to observe and record the amount of  times the pigeon moved its head up or down over a 5 minute period with 15 second intervals.  Below are my groups findings throughout the experiment: Frequency Behavior Topography 19 head movement (L & R) turning of the head to the left & right 3 stepped to the left moving entire body to the left 3                                  poked head out of bending down & sticking head out of the feeding hole 3 opened mouth opening of the beak 2 made bird noise growling noise in back of throat 3                                  poked at back turning of head and thrusting beak at  back  5                                  glanced upwards moving of head upwards towards  ceiling Cumulative Record Baseline 0­15 3 4 3 2 3 16­30 2 3 5 5 2 31­45 5 3 5 2 2 46­60 3 2 2 5 2 13 12 15 14 9 Shaping 2 3 3 2 2 2 2 4 2 0 2 2 3 4 3 0 3 3 3 3 3 4 2 3 10 14 11 6 9 10
