The detection and discrimination properties of two different plastic scintillator detectors were investigated, namely one constructed from standard plastic scintillator and another of the same scintillator doped with Gadolinium. The response of these detectors to exposure to neutrons and gammas from 137Cs and 252Cf sources is assessed.
