The paradigm consisted of pairing an aversive stimulus (pseudopredator) with a conditioned chemical(More)
The Florida spiny lobster, Panulirus argus, can behaviorally discriminate between members of a set of four artificial odorant mixture types: crab, mullet, oyster, and shrimp. The present experiments were designed to examine the effects of both intensity and quality on discrimination of odorant mixtures. This was accomplished by conditioning lobsters to only(More)
