Previous studies have shown that pipradrol enhances the acquisition of responding with conditioned reinforcement. The present experiments replicated this finding and assessed the possible role of nonspecific stimulus change, feeding in the test environment and procedure consisted of three phases: Operant rates of pressing two levers, one of which produced a 3-s tone, were measured in the pre-exposure phase; the tone was paired with food in the four conditioning sessions; and conditioned… CONTINUE READING
