Example text

However, what drive is redured when an animal pushes a lever to pump as much electric current as it can into its lateral hypothalamus? In a clear intuitive sense, the animal is working to increase, not to decrease, electric current. Moreover, why does an animal self-stimulate more if its hunger drive is increased and the electrode is placed in a hunger-related locus? One might argue that the self-stimulation paradigm is so abnormal that the animal’s behavior is not really reinforced, but only seems to be reinforced.

After classical conditioning with CS = visual presentation of food and UCS = smell of food, the animal salivates when it sees the food. This ability characterizes stage Ez. Now a second conditioning experiment is performed in which CS = ringing bell and UCS = visual presentation of food. Ultimately, L salivates when it hears the ringing bell. How does the visual presentation of food in the first experiment enable this event to become a UCS in the second experiment? The network in Figure 5 suggests an answer.

The concepts of the Estes theory are expressed in the probabilistic language of stimulus Sampling theory. External cues and amplifier elements are said to be scanned, presumably by some probabilistic serial mechanism, and conditioning of cues to amplifier elementas changes the probability of a successful joint scan of cues and amplifiers. By contrast,, in the network theory, the probabilities of scanning amplifier elements are replaced by activity pat,terris that exist, arross all the drive rrprrscwtations a t earh t,iriic,.
