Distal cues and latent extinction

  title={Distal cues and latent extinction},

SummaryThe hypothesis was tested that the failure of Bugelski et al (1952) to obtain latent extinction effects in a “replication” of Seward and Levy’s (1949) latent extinction study was due to the absence of differential extra-maze stimuli at the ends of the runway in Bugelski’s study. In the present study rats were run with and without differential cues and the results supported the hypothesis thus resolving the apparent contradiction.
