The Discriminate Control of a Food-Reinforced Operant by Interoceptive Stimulation
In 1928 By kov and Ivanova provided the first demonstration that interoceptive stimulation could become a conditioned stimulus in a classical conditioning paradigm (Bykov, 1957). Utilizing the classical conditioning technique, Bykov and his co-workers have subsequently demonstrated the existence of interoceptors in a wide variety of organs and tissues in the body. The extent of general scientific interest in this area is indicated by the fact that Bykov’s major report of his thirty-year program on interoception has been translated into more foreign languages than any other Russian book in the field of medicine or biology (Razran, 1961).
