Pseudoconditioning “Pseudo” means sham; false; spurious;  pretended; counterfeit. Pseudoconditioning refers to CR-like  responding that is not due to the development of  the CS-US association. Pseudoconditioning may be due to experience  with the CS  per se  or to experience with the US  per se .

Pseudoconditioning in Sign-Tracking Procedures Pseudoconditioning may develop due to experience  with food US:   Each food US presentation induces psychomotor  activation, due to the release of forebrain dopamine,  increasing the gross motor activity of the rat.   When a rat is actively moving about the experimental  chamber, the rat is more likely to make contact with  the lever CS, resulting in the recording of a Sign- Tracking CR.

Pseudoconditioning in Sign-Tracking Procedures Pseudoconditioning may develop due to insertion of the  lever CS: The insertion of the lever CS may elicit aggressive  responses in the territorial rat.   Thus, mere experience with repeated insertions of the  lever CS will increase the likelihood of contacting and  biting the lever CS.
