Drug-Produced Cues and States: Some Theoretical and Methodological Inferences
A major position in the field of Drug Discrimination (DD) and State-Dependent (StD) learning is that the learning phenomena referred to by these terms would pertain to a single property of drugs and require the operation of one type of physiological mechanisms. Acceptance of this concept is very widespread, and the following statements exemplify the position in a most explicit way: “Indeed, the whole field of studies under the heading ‘state-dependent learning’ seems to me to be no more and no less than examples of control of behavior by drugs as discriminative stimuli.” (Dews, 1975); “... that state-dependent (i.e. discriminative stimulus) properties... of drugs...” (Kuhn et al., 197 6).
