Female Long-Evans rats were trained to discriminate d-amphetamine (0.8 mg/kg) vs. saline in a food-reinforced two-lever operant task. Fifteen rats (fast group) acquired the discrimination rapidly, achieving criterion (eight correct choices within ten sessions) during the first 10 sessions (mean sessions to criterion = 10.0). The remaining eight rats (slow group) made at least three errors during the first 10 sessions and required additional drug discrimination training to achieve criterion… CONTINUE READING

Female rats that rapidly acquire a d - amphetamine discrimination generalize more to d - amphetamine .
The fast group made more d - amphetamine - appropriate choices during the generalization test and generalized more to the 0.2 mg / kg d - amphetamine test dose than did the slow group , though the number of training sessions prior to generalization testing was comparable across groups .
