A stimulus generalization paradigm was used with classical respiratory conditioning to study analytic listening in the goldfish. Animals were first conditioned to suppress respiration upon the presentation of a long-duration complex sound comprised of two sinusoidal components, 166 and 724 Hz. Conditioned animals were then presented with a set of eight novel test tones with frequencies between 95 and 1514 Hz, and including 166 and 724 Hz. Response magnitudes were greatest at the frequencies of… CONTINUE READING
