Zusammenfassung

Unter Verwendung einer passiven Vermeidungsreaktion mit Futterbelohnung nach verschiedenen Zeitintervallen zwischen 0 und 120 sec konnte gezeigt werden, dass belohnung 20, 30 und 50 sec nach dem Fusschock signifikant verbessertes Lernen bewirkt. Diese Daten unterstützen die Hypothese, dass Gedächtnisprozesse-konzeptionell als operante Reaktion aufgefasst-durch Belohnung modiiizierbar sind.
