SummaryBy changing the conditioned discrimination paradigm of Quinn et al. (1974) from an instrumental procedure to a classical (Pavlovian) one, we have demonstrated strong learning in type flies. [...] Key Method About 150 flies were sequestered in a closed chamber and trained by explosing them sequentially to two odors in air currents. Flies received twelve electric shock pulses in the presence of the first odor (CS+) but not in the presence of the second odor (CS−).Expand
Conditioned avoidance responses survive contingency degradation in the garden slug, Lehmannia valentiana
TLDR
In two experiments, using conditioned aversion to a food odor as a measure of learning and memory retention, it is suggested that the CS–US association survived the degradation manipulation and was retained over an interval of several days. Expand
Conditioning odor-shock associations in the black blowfly,Phormia regina
TLDR
Discriminative classical conditioning of an olfactory avoidance response was demonstrated in the blowfly, Phormia regina, and blow flies showed much lower levels of associative learning than fruit flies. Expand
Aversive olfactory learning and associative long-term memory in Caenorhabditis elegans.
TLDR
Protocols for classical conditioning of worms with 1-propanol, as a conditioned stimulus (CS), and hydrochloride (HCl) (pH 4.0), as an unconditioned stimulus (US) are developed and the memories after the spaced and massed trainings can be classified as long-term memory (LTM) and short-term/middle- term memory (STM/MTM), respectively.

Olfactory conditioning of proboscis activity in Drosophila melanogaster
TLDR
Individual olfactory conditioning of proboscis activity in restrained Drosophila melanogaster is reported for the first time, and it is shown that learning performance was dependent on food motivation, by comparing flies subjected to different starvation regimes. Expand
Appetitive and Aversive Visual Learning in Freely Moving Drosophila
TLDR
It is shown that formic acid can act as an aversive chemical reinforcer, yielding weak, yet significant, aversive memory in Drosophila. Expand
Trace conditioning in insects—keep the trace!
TLDR
This review summarizes the recent progress in insect trace conditioning on the behavioral and physiological level and emphasizes similarities and differences compared to delay conditioning, and examines proposed molecular and computational models and reassess different experimental approaches used for trace conditioning. Expand
Olfactory Trace Conditioning in Drosophila
TLDR
A rigorous trace conditioning paradigm is established in the fruit fly, Drosophila melanogaster, and weak correlation between the behavioral odor generalization profile in trace conditioning and the physiological odor similarity profiles in the antennal lobe suggest that the odor trace used for associative learning may be encoded downstream of the olfactory receptors. Expand
Reversal learning in Drosophila larvae.
TLDR
The present study establishes a simple and genetically easy accessible study case of cognitive flexibility in larval Drosophila, and reveals "true" reversal learning in that the opposite associative effects of both the first and the second training phase are detectable after reversed-contingency training. Expand
Classical reward conditioning in Drosophila melanogaster
TLDR
Comparative analyses of learning and memory mutants in two assays may help identify the molecular and cellular components that are specific to the unconditioned stimulus information used in conditioning. Expand
Behavioral Characterization of Individual Olfactory Memory Retrieval in Drosophila Melanogaster
TLDR
It is demonstrated that genetically and pharmacologically distinct forms of memory drive characteristically different forms of locomotor behavior during retrieval, and they may shed light on the previous observation that memory retrieval in massed-trained flies is socially facilitated. Expand

TLDR
Tests on Drosophila melanogaster mutants for more elementary types of behavioral plasticity--habituation and sensitization of a reflex and three associative learning mutants are reported, finding that the dunce, turnip, and rutabaga mutants all habituate less than normal flies. Expand
Differential classical conditioning of a defensive withdrawal reflex in Aplysia californica.
TLDR
The finding that two independent afferent inputs that activate a common set of interneurons and motor neurons can be differentially conditioned restricts the possible cellular loci involved in the associative learning. Expand
Conditioning Mutations in DROSOPHILA MELANOGASTER Affect an Experience-Dependent Behavioral Modification in Courting Males.
TLDR
Results indicate that males of the conditioning-defective strains are able to elicit necessary cues from fertilized females, yet do not then modify their courtship with virgin females, suggesting that experience-dependent modification of courtship and the previously reported associative olfactory conditioning with electric shock share common elements of processing.

TLDR
Results indicate that a mechanism of classical conditioning of the withdrawal reflex is an elaboration of the mechanism underlying sensitization, and the mechanisms of higher-order features of learning, such as the effect of contingency, may be built from combinations of the molecular mechanisms of these simple forms of learning.

TLDR
By anaesthetising the flies briefly with cold at various times between training and testing, the authors have found two memory components in Drosophila that suggest that learned information is stored by the brain in more than one form. Expand

TLDR
A new mutant strain is described whose males court and mate with wild-type, virgin females normally; but after such a mating, theWild-type female is readily courted by a wild- type male, and that male subsequently exhibits vigorous courtship of other females. Expand
