Rats received exposure to two compound flavours, AX and BX, where A and B were sucrose and saline and X was acid. For group intermixed (1), exposure consisted of alternating trials with AX and BX; group blocked (B) received a block of AX trials and a separate block of BX trials. Experiment 1 showed that generalization to BX after conditioning with AX was less profound in group 1 than in group B. Separate examination of the elements of the compound showed that the source of this difference lay… CONTINUE READING

Experiment 1 showed that generalization to BX after conditioning with AX was less profound in group 1 than in group B. Separate examination of the elements of the compound showed that the source of this difference lay in the strength acquired by the X element .
