ARMED FORCES RADIOBIOLOGY RESEARCH INST BETHESDA MD
Pagination or Media Count:
Procedures for training pigs by shock avoidance conditioning to perform a shuttlebox and a visual discrimination problem are described. Pigs achieved stable performance levels of better than 95 shock avoidance in six and 35 days for the shuttlebox and discrimination problem, respectively. Such stable and accurate performances are required for assessing behavioral effects of independent variables.
