The status of blocking in human eyelid conditioning was examined in a series of four experiments modelled on rabbit nictitating membrane (NMR) procedures to ensure comparability with the animal literature. The first three employed Tones and Lights as CSs and a preliminary experiment established equivalent salience of these stimuli. The fourth employed all light conditioned stimuli (CSs). Each of the experiments balanced order of presentation of blocked and non-blocked stimuli in extinction… CONTINUE READING
