Non Associative and Associative Learning in the Naples High (NHE) And Low Excitable (NLE) Rat Strains
The purpose of the present research was to investigate the contribution of non associative processes (excitability, emotionality, habituation) to behavioural plasticity. To this end a series of non associative and associative behavioural tasks was carried out on rats of the Naples High (NHE) and Low Excitable (NLE) strains, which have been selected genetically for divergent behavioural arousal to novel environments in a modified Làt’s maze (2).
