SummaryWe have recently demonstrated that associative learning can play an important role in the regulation of food selection behavior ofLimax maximus, a terrestrial mollusc. The tendency ofLimax to approach a normally attractive odor generated by a food source such as carrot or potato can be markedly reduced if exposure to that odor is paired with exposure to a bitter taste (quinidine sulfate). We now report that variables known to influence associative learning by vertebrates (the operations… Expand
