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… CONTINUE READING
