Pigeons that repeatedly experienced the effect of apomorphine in the same environment showed an augmented behavioural response to the same drug dose as compared with controls that experienced the effect of the drug dose in differing environments. Sensitization, an increase in the behavioural response that is observed in pigeons when the same dose of(More)
Microinjections of the dopamine agonist apomorphine into the nucleus basalis prosencephali of pigeons elicit stereotyped pecking behaviour. Injections of 6-hydroxydopamine, a toxic dopamine antagonist, into the same nucleus impair stereotyped pecking induced by systemic apomorphine administration, but do not interfere with pecking in the normal feeding(More)
The dopamine agonist apomorphine elicits protracted pecking when injected systemically (1 mg/kg) into pigeons. In two experiments it was investigated whether apomorphine would function as an unconditioned stimulus in the classical conditioning of pecking in these animals. An experimental design based on a differentiation procedure was used so that possible(More)
The feature-positive effect (FPE) is a widespread and robust phenomenon in the context of discrimination learning. It refers to the fact that a distinctive feature associated with a stimulus that is reinforced leads to efficient discrimination learning, whereas the same feature associated with the nonreinforced stimulus inhibits discrimination learning. Two(More)
These supplementary notes pertain to the Delius, Acerbo, Krug, Lee, and Leydel (2015) paper and summarize some earlier findings about the influence of the environment on the apomorphine (apo) effect, describe the variability of apo effects, the effects of apo infusion, the individual occurrence of apo insensitivity, its indifference with regard to reward(More)
