Unformatted text preview: between the neural center for the US and the neural center for the UR. The learning of CRs takes place through the establishment of new functional neural pathways. With repeated CS/US pairings, a connection develops between the brain center for the CS and the brain center for the US. Presentation of the CS results in excitation of the US neural center, by way of the new learned pathway. Excitation of the US neural center then generates the UR. Therefore, conditioning enables the CS to elicit the UR. And that the CS becomes a substitute for the US, so that the response initially elicited by the US is now elicited by the CS. This stimulus substitution model predicts that the CR will be similar to the UR....
