  • 1 February 1964
TLDR
The amount of transfer of training between nondrug and drug states was shown to be inversely proportional to the size of the drug dose used to establish the drug state. Expand

State Dependent Learning and Drug Discriminations
In these words, Combe first described state dependent learning in 1830. During the last 20 years, state dependent learning (SDL) and drug discriminations (DD) have been the subject of several hundredExpand

TLDR
The present technique appears to be useful for directly comparing the dissociative effects of a variety of drugs and indicates that not all dissociation phenomena are the result of some single unidimensional process. Expand
Comparison of the degree of discriminability of various drugs using the T-maze drug discrimination paradigm
TLDR
The results suggest that the majority of psychoactive drugs can be investigated by use of the drug discrimination technique, and that state-dependent learning effects will not accompany clinical use of most psychoactive drug unless intoxicating doses are used. Expand
Eye-tracking performance in psychiatric patients.
Historical context of state dependent learning and discriminative drug effects.

  • 1 September 1991
TLDR
This paper reviews the nineteeth and twentieth century history of clinical observations, concepts, and experiments, that have led to the current status of knowledge about drug discriminations and SDL. Expand
Influence of shaping procedures and schedules of reinforcement on performance in the two-bar drug discrimination task: A methodological report
  • D. Overton
  • Psychology, Medicine
  • Psychopharmacology
  • 1 November 1979
TLDR
When the optimal shaping procedure and schedule of reinforcement were used, highly accurate drug discriminations were learned much more rapidly than has previously been reported. Expand
Discriminative Control of Behavior by Drug States
Centrally acting drugs can be used in place of discriminative stimuli, and often acquire response control with surprising rapidity when used in this way. Also, without discriminative training, theExpand
Applications and Limitations of the Drug Discrimination Method for the Study Of Drug Abuse
TLDR
The advantages and disadvantages of drug discrimination (DD) procedures as methods for obtaining information about the properties of drugs that underlie drug abuse are described. Expand
