Abstract

Using proboscis extension (unconditioned response) to sucrose (unconditioned stimulus), individual blowflies (Phormia regina) were classically conditioned to saline and to water (conditioned stimuli) with sensitization controls, thus providing unique, independently replicated evidence b...read more
