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.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
