We describe the serial implicit learning task (SILT), a novel test for assessing implicit and procedural learning in rodents, and have used the task to test whether striatal lesions disrupt the speed and accuracy of responding to stimulus-response (S-R) sequences that may be either predictable or unpredictable. In this task, the rats must learn to respond to two consecutive stimulus lights, S1 and S2, which may occur on each trial in any of five alternative response locations, for food reward… CONTINUE READING
