Abstract

The traditional paradigm of avoidance conditioning allows an escape response if no avoidance response occurs. The paradigm investigated in the present experiment, the "pure" avoidance paradigm, does not contain the escape component. If no avoidance occurs, the US is delivered for a fixed duration and the trial is over.
