Visually conditioned heart rate change in the pigeon has been developed as a vertebrate model system for cellular analysis of associative learning. Previous studies have characterized the behavior, largely delineated the neural circuitry mediating the conditioning, and estimated the central processing time for the conditioned response. Most recently, this system has been used to investigate neuronal activity during conditioning along the visual pathways that transmit the conditioned stimulus… CONTINUE READING
