Fish (Tilapia aurea), as rats, learn shuttle better than lever-bumping (press) avoidance tasks: a suggestion for functionally similar universal reactions to a conditioned fear-arousing stimulus.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Fish learned a shuttle avoidance task faster than a lever-bumping task. The latter task was hardly mastered at all. These and other results tend to support the suggestion for functionally similar universal reactions to a conditioned fear-arousing stimulus.
