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.
