Acquistion of conditioned lever-press avoidance behavior on a continuous avoidance schedule (response-shock interval=30 s and shock-shock interval=5 s) and on a discrete avoidance schedule (intertrial interval=25 s and duration of the warning presentation=5 s with an escape contingency) in dd mice was investigated. When the behavioral baseline had stabilized, the effects of diazepam on avoidance behaviors were examined. About 60% and 80% of the mice achieved criterion levels of avoidance… CONTINUE READING
