Abstract:

Both male and female rats were used to investigate the effects of positive and negative subcortical stimulation on a conditioned escape task. The study utilized 1 non-contingent stimulation and 2 stimulation during extinction. Studies were made to test the Theory of Choice and to investigate horizontal and vertical line preferences in the rat using a simple T-maze. A pilot study was also made in an attempt to furnish some basic data to determine a feasible acquisition criterion in animal escape learning. Author
