In many experimental settings, lesions of the central nucleus of the amygdala (CN) interfere with surprise-induced enhancement of event processing. In those settings, surprise was produced by omitting an expected event. This experiment examined the effects of CN lesions on enhanced learning after surprise was induced by presenting an unexpected event. After extensive light-food pellet pairings, a light-noise compound was paired with food pellets, and a sucrose solution was unexpectedly… CONTINUE READING
