Conditioned antinociception can be established in spinal rats by pairing stimulation to one hind leg (the conditioned stimulus [CS]) with an intense tailshock (the unconditioned stimulus [US]). After this training, the paired CS (CS+) elicits greater antinociception on the tail-flick test than a CS that was explicitly unpaired (CS-). Five experiments are reported that suggest that this effect reflects protection from habituation. Experiment 1 showed that the CS (legshock) induces… CONTINUE READING
