    The rodent eyeblink conditioning paradigm is an ideal model system for examining the relationship between neural maturation and the ontogeny of associative learning. Elucidation of the neural mechanisms underlying the ontogeny of learning is tractable using eyeblink conditioning because the...

    Three conditioned lick suppression experiments with rats were performed to assess the influence, following compound training of two stimuli (A and X) with the same outcome (AX-O trials), of ex- tending training of the blocking association (i.e., A-O) on responding to the target stimulus (X) at...

    How humans infer causation from covariation has been the subject of a vigorous debate, most recently between the computational causal power account (P.W. Cheng, 1997) and associative learning theorists (e.g., K. Lober & D.R. Shanks, 2000). Whereas most researchers in the subject area agree that...

    In two appetitive conditioning experiments with rats, we investigated the mechanisms responsible for demonstrations of the superior associability of overshadowed conditioned stimuli (CSs) relative to control CSs. In Experiment 1, we investigated whether previous demonstrations were a consequence...

    A long-standing debate in neuroscience is whether classical and operant conditioning are mechanistically similar or distinct. The feeding behavior of Aplysia provides a model system suitable for addressing this question. Here we report that classical and operant conditioning of feeding behavior...

    Instrumental responding was evaluated to determine whether mice lacking dopamine [dopamine-deficient mice (DD mice)] could learn to preferentially press a visually cued, active lever for food reward over an inactive lever. When DD mice were treated with 3,4- L-dihydroxyphenalanine (L-dopa) to...

    Purpose: To examine the effect of dopamine depletion in nucleus accumbens on trace conditioning; to distinguish the role of core and shell sub-regions, as far as possible. Material/Methods: 6-hydroxydopamine was used to lesion dopamine terminals within the core and shell accumbens. Experiment 1...

    Visual stimuli undetected by normal subjects as a result of masking procedures can nonetheless activate response preparation in motor areas and yield a motor response. An unanswered question is whether the same holds for undetected subliminal stimuli that are not responded to. To answer this...
