Rats were trained to escape from shook in a T maze. A response learned by S while it was drugged with 25 mg/kg sodium pentobarbital failed to appear if S was subsequently tested while not drugged. Conversely, a response learned by S while undrugged did not occur if S was tested while drugged. In both cases performance of the response was dependent upon reinstatement of the drug condition present during training. The amount of transfer of training between nondrug and drug states was shown to be… Expand
Learning of rats under amnesia caused by pentobarbital.

TLDR
Findings show that the brain-dissociated state induced by pentobarbital is formed with the participation of the mechanisms of information perception. Expand
Neural thresholds and state-dependent learning.
TLDR
Results showed that shifts in brain excitability levels cannot explain the state-dependent phenomenon; that the effect of pentobarbital upon the conditioning thresholds was a function of the animal's prior experience with the drug and not directly afunction of its pharmacological action. Expand
State-dependent learning in rats induced by kindled convulsions.
TLDR
Learning in the post-ictal and normal states was shown to be independent (total lack in transfer) in both of the above experiments. Expand
A comparison of state dependent learning induced by electroconvulsive shock and pentobarbital.
TLDR
The results of Experiment 2 but not of Experiment 1 support the notion that amnesia observed 24 hr after a training trial FS followed 0.5 sec later by ECS may be due to a state dependency effect rather than the failure of memory fixation. Expand
State-dependent learning produced by depressant and atropine-like drugs

TLDR
The present technique appears to be useful for directly comparing the dissociative effects of a variety of drugs and indicates that not all dissociation phenomena are the result of some single unidimensional process. Expand
The failure of methamphetamine hydrochloride to produce dissociation of an escape response
Twenty-seven albino rats were trained to make an escape response at one of two dosage levels of methamphetamine or in a placebo state. Subsequently, they were tested in both drug states, as well asExpand
The effect of external stimulus change on ethanol-produced dissociation
  • P. M. Duncan

  • Pharmacology Biochemistry and Behavior
  • 1979
TLDR
Rats which were subjected to aversive Pavlovian conditioning while in a state of ethanol-produced intoxication showed significantly less conditioned suppression of water drinking in the non-drugged state only if the external stimulus situation was also changed between conditioning and testing, which supports a generalization-decrement explanation of drug-produced dissociation of memory. Expand
Cue use in state-dependent learning
Four experiments were conducted to determine what cues rats used to escape from a water maze in the normal nondrugged state or while drugged with pentobarbital. The subjects were trained to escapeExpand
Noncontingent exposure to the unconditioned stimulus attenuates state-dependent memory loss
Animals trained on an aversively motivated one-trial passive avoidance task were given pretraining administration of either hypothermia or a novel drug state (15.0 mg/kg pentobarbital). Both of theseExpand
State dependent control of discrimination by morphine and pentobarbital
TLDR
Rats were trained in state dependent discrimination to escape shock in a T-maze by turning one way under a drug and the other way under saline without aid of exteroceptive cues, and highly significant dose-related state dependent behavior occurred in both the training and test periods. Expand

Design for a Brain
TLDR
Ashby accepts, as fact, that the nervous system behaves adaptively and assumes that it is, in its essentials, mechanistic, and examines dynamic systems from the standpoint of rigorous scientific —dominantly mathematical—logic until he has evolved a theoretical counterpart of brain functioning.
