stimulus response line theory of communication as a process which can be derived by noise. Do you agree?
No. Under carefully controlled experimental conditions, each animal will respond as it damn well pleases: that is about the only true observation that has been made at Harvard.
When you get into all these psychological theories on human behaviour, you really are getting in to arguments and postulates based on syntax and sematics, so be careful about developing generalizations or "predictive" postulates (as in your question). In the end, each will respond as they damn well desire.
From what I understand, "noise" includes all environmental stimuli that interfere with effective communication. Given that information, would you agree?
