Although aggression has repeatedly been observed in mousetraps in the field, the variable controlling the aggression has not previously been identified. The purpose of the present study was to determine whether aggression in mouse traps could be induced by an intermittent schedule of reinforcement. The necessary condition for concluding that attack is schedule-induced is that more attack occurs during exposure to an intermittent schedule of reinforcement (e.g., food) than in its absence.

  • Use past tense when discussing studies already conducted.

  • Use future when talking about the study you are proposing.

Schedule Induced Attack in Mouse Traps:

Behavior Modification of Inanimate Objects

The introduction begins on the page following the abstract. The introduction is never labeled. This is where you present the logic and background research that suggested this study. The general problem area is mentioned in the first paragraph, followed by a brief review of the relevant published findings.

There are specific ways to cite previously published works (Miller, 1941). When there are two or more authors, they are cited this way (Looney & Dove, 1978).
