An investigation involving the use of young, naive, grouped male mice as "standard opponents" in intermale aggression tests was carried out. Castrated "standard opponents" were less effective in eliciting fighting behavior from mature, isolated male test animals than intact opponents on the second day of testing. When changes in a number of aggression test parameters were considered with respect to fighting experience, it was found that the most obvious change in behavior was evident between the first and second tests. It seems likely, in the light of studies which compare the "round robin" test and the "standard opponent" test that the latter test is a means of precluding much of the conditioning evident in the "round robin" as well as being a much faster procedure.
