The primary purpose of this chapter is to document a meaningful relationship between two somewhat diverse areas of psychological research —discrimination learning and SAB. An attempt will be made to demonstrate that: (1) The cues responsible for SAB can be used to predict discrimination learning rates; and (2) Depending on the situation, SAB may interfere with or facilitate discrimination learning. A secondary aim of this chapter is to review and interpret the effects of food deprivation and food reinforcement on SAB, especially as they interact to affect the cues to which the rats are attending.
