Brief, noxious, electrical or mechanical stimulation of the skin of Aplysia produces enhancement of defensive reflexes triggered at the same site for at least a week after the noxious stimulation. This site-specific behavioral sensitization can be expressed as an increase in duration of the siphon-withdrawal reflex and as an increase in magnitude of the tail-withdrawal reflex. It is unlikely that peripheral factors play a predominant role in the long-term memory. First, long-term enhancement is… CONTINUE READING
