In four experiments the nature of learning established with unblocking procedures in the appetitive conditioning of rats was examined. Measures of learning included response topography, effects of selective satiation, and summation and retardation tests of conditioned inhibition. One cue (A) was first paired with either a single unconditioned stimulus event, US1, or a sequence of two events, US1----US2. US2 was either qualitatively similar to (US2-Same) or different from (US2-Diff) US1. Then, a… CONTINUE READING
