Neural changes after operant conditioning of the aerial respiratory behavior in Lymnaea stagnalis. (1/3198)

In this study, we demonstrate neural changes that occurred during operant conditioning of the aerial respiratory behavior of Lymnaea stagnalis. Aerial respiration in Lymnaea occurs at the water interface and is achieved by opening and closing movements of its respiratory orifice, the pneumostome. This behavior is controlled by a central pattern generator (CPG), the neurons of which, as well as the motoneurons innervating the pneumostome, have previously been identified and their synaptic connections well characterized. The respiratory behavior was operantly conditioned by applying a mechanical stimulus to the open pneumostome whenever the animal attempted to breathe. This negative reinforcement to the open pneumostome resulted in its immediate closure and a significant reduction in the overall respiratory activity. Electrophysiological recordings from the isolated CNSs after operant conditioning showed that the spontaneous patterned respiratory activity of the CPG neurons was significantly reduced. This included reduced spontaneous activity of the CPG interneuron involved in pneumostome opening (input 3 interneuron) and a reduced frequency of spontaneous tonic activity of the CPG interneuron [right pedal dorsal 1 (RPeD1)]. The ability to trigger the patterned respiratory activity by electrical stimulation of RPeD1 was also significantly reduced after operant conditioning. This study therefore demonstrates significant changes within a CPG that are associated with changes in a rhythmic homeostatic behavior after operant conditioning.  (+info)

Effects of promazine, chlorpromazine, d-amphetamine, and pentobarbital on treadle pressing by pigeons under a signalled shock-postponement schedule. (2/3198)

The effects of promazine on treadle pressing to postpone the presentation of electric shock were studied in three pigeons. The effects of chlorpromazine, d-amphetamine, and pentobarbital were studied in two of these pigeons. Each treadle press postponed electric shock for 20 sec and presentation of a preshock stimulus for 14 sec. Selected doses of both promazine and chlorpromazine increased the rates of treadle pressing in all birds. The response-rate increases produced by promazine and chlorpromazine were due to increased conditional probabilities of treadle pressing both before and during the preshock stimulus. d-Amphetamine (1 and 3 mg/kg) slightly increased responding in one of the birds, but not to the extent that promazine or chlorpromazine did. In the other bird, the 10 mg/kg dose of d-amphetamine increased shock rate but did not change response rate. Some doses of d-amphetamine increased the conditional probabilities of responding both in the absence of the preshock signal and during the preshock signal in both birds. Pentobarbital only decreased response rates and increased shock rates.  (+info)

The effects of d-amphetamine on the temporal control of operant responding in rats during a preshock stimulus. (3/3198)

The operant behavior of six rats was maintained by a random-interval schedule of reinforcement. Three-minute periods of noise were superimposed on this behavior, each period ending with the delivery of an unavoidable shock. Overall rates of responding were generally lower during the periods of noise than in its absence (conditioned suppression). These suppressed response rates also exhibited temporal patterning, with responding becoming less frequent as each noise period progressed. The effects of d-amphetamine on this behavioral baseline were then assessed. In four animals the relative response rates during the noise and in its absence suggested that the drug produced a dose-related decrease in the amount of conditioned suppression. However, this effect was often due to a decrease in the rates of responding in the absence of the preshock stimulus, rather than to an increase in response rates during the stimulus. Temporal patterning in response rates during the preshock stimulus was abolished, an effect that was interpreted in terms of rate-dependent effect of d-amphetamine. This study thus extends rate-dependent analyses of the effects of amphetamines to the patterns of operant behavior that occur during a preshock stimulus, and which have been discussed in terms of the disrupting effects of anxiety on operant behavior.  (+info)

Effects of chronic administration of kanamycin on conditioned suppression to auditory stimulus in rats. (4/3198)

The conditioned suppression technique was employed to study the ototoxic effects of chronic administration of the antibiotic, kanamycin. Lever pressing behavior for food reinforcement of rats was suppressed in the presence of an auditory stimulus (sound) or visual stimulus (light) that had been previously paired with electric shocks. Repeated administration of kanamycin at the dose of 400 mg/kg/day for more than 50 days significantly attenuated the conditioned suppression to auditory stimulus but did not attenuate the conditioned suppression to visual stimulus. This finding suggests that the attenuating effect of chronic administration of kanamycin on conditioned suppression to auditory stimulus can be interpreted in terms of the selective action of the drug on the auditory system.  (+info)

In vitro analog of operant conditioning in aplysia. I. Contingent reinforcement modifies the functional dynamics of an identified neuron. (5/3198)

Previously, an analog of operant conditioning in Aplysia was developed using the rhythmic motor activity in the isolated buccal ganglia. This analog expressed a key feature of operant conditioning, namely a selective enhancement in the occurrence of a designated motor pattern by contingent reinforcement. Different motor patterns generated by the buccal central pattern generator were induced by monotonic stimulation of a peripheral nerve (i.e., n.2,3). Phasic stimulation of the esophageal nerve (E n.) was used as an analog of reinforcement. The present study investigated the neuronal mechanisms associated with the genesis of different motor patterns and their modifications by contingent reinforcement. The genesis of different motor patterns was related to changes in the functional states of the pre-motor neuron B51. During rhythmic activity, B51 dynamically switched between inactive and active states. Bursting activity in B51 was associated with, and predicted, characteristic features of a specific motor pattern (i.e., pattern I). Contingent reinforcement of pattern I modified the dynamical properties of B51 by decreasing its resting conductance and threshold for eliciting plateau potentials and thus increased the occurrences of pattern I-related activity in B51. These modifications were not observed in preparations that received either noncontingent reinforcement (i.e., yoke control) or no reinforcement (i.e., control). These results suggest that a contingent reinforcement paradigm can regulate the dynamics of neuronal activity that is centrally programmed by the intrinsic cellular properties of neurons.  (+info)

In vitro analog of operant conditioning in aplysia. II. Modifications of the functional dynamics of an identified neuron contribute to motor pattern selection. (6/3198)

Previously, an analog of operant conditioning was developed using the buccal ganglia of Aplysia, the probabilistic occurrences of a specific motor pattern (i.e., pattern I), a contingent reinforcement (i.e., stimulation of the esophageal nerve), and monotonic stimulation of a peripheral nerve (i.e., n.2,3). This analog expressed a key feature of operant conditioning (i.e., selective enhancement of the probability of occurrence of a designated motor pattern by contingent reinforcement). In addition, the training induced changes in the dynamical properties of neuron B51, an element of the buccal central pattern generator. To gain insights into the neuronal mechanisms that mediate features of operant conditioning, the present study identified a neuronal element that was critically involved in the selective enhancement of pattern I. We found that bursting activity in cell B51 contributed significantly to the expression of pattern I and that changes in the dynamical properties of this cell were associated with the selective enhancement of pattern I. These changes could be induced by an explicit association of reinforcement with random depolarization of B51. No stimulation of n.2,3 was required. These results indicate that the selection of a designated motor pattern by contingent reinforcement and the underlying neuronal plasticity resulted from the association of reinforcement with a component of central neuronal activity that contributes to a specific motor pattern. The sensory stimulus that allows for occurrences of different motor acts may not be critical for induction of plasticity that mediates the selection of a motor output by contingent reinforcement in operant conditioning.  (+info)

Electrophysiological and behavioral analysis of lip touch as a component of the food stimulus in the snail Lymnaea. (7/3198)

Electrophysiological and video recording methods were used to investigate the function of lip touch in feeding ingestion behavior of the pond snail Lymnaea stagnalis. Although this stimulus was used successfully as a conditioning stimulus (CS) in appetitive learning experiments, the detailed role of lip touch as a component of the sensory stimulus provided by food in unconditioned feeding behavior was never ascertained. Synaptic responses to lip touch in identified feeding motoneurons, central pattern generator interneurons, and modulatory interneurons were recorded by intracellular electrodes in a semi-intact preparation. We showed that touch evoked a complex but characteristic sequence of synaptic inputs on each neuron type. Touch never simply activated feeding cycles but provided different types of synaptic input, determined by the feeding phase in which the neuron was normally active in the rhythmic feeding cycle. The tactile stimulus evoked mainly inhibitory synaptic inputs in protraction-phase neurons and excitation in rasp-phase neurons. Swallow-phase neurons were also excited after some delay, suggesting that touch first reinforces the rasp then swallow phase. Video analysis of freely feeding animals demonstrated that during normal ingestion of a solid food flake the food is drawn across the lips throughout the rasp phase and swallow phase and therefore provides a tactile stimulus during both these retraction phases of the feeding cycle. The tactile component of the food stimulus is strongest during the rasp phase when the lips are actively pressed onto the substrate that is being moved across them by the radula. By using a semi-intact preparation we demonstrated that application of touch to the lips during the rasp phase of a sucrose-driven fictive feeding rhythm increases both the regularity and frequency of rasp-phase motoneuron firing compared with sucrose applied alone.  (+info)

Effects of (+)-HA-966, CGS-19755, phencyclidine, and dizocilpine on repeated acquisition of response chains in pigeons: systemic manipulation of central glycine sites. (8/3198)

The effects of i.m. injections of (+)-HA-966, a glycine-site antagonist at the N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) subtype of the glutamate receptor, its enantiomer (-)-HA-966, the competitive glutamate antagonist CGS-19755, the uncompetitive glutamate antagonists phencyclidine and dizocilpine, and the micro opioid agonist morphine were evaluated in a repeated acquisition task in pigeons. All of the drugs produced dose-dependent decreases in rates of responding. The NMDA receptor and channel blockers and (+)-HA-966 appeared to have a greater effect on acquisition than did morphine at doses that did not fully suppress responding. The rate suppression and learning impairment produced by a large dose of (+)-HA-966 (100 mg/kg) were completely prevented by coadministration of the glycine-site agonist D-serine (560 mg/kg) but not by its enantiomer, L-serine (1000 mg/kg). D-Serine, however, produced incomplete antagonism of the effects of dizocilpine and phencyclidine and failed to alter those of CGS-19755. These findings provide evidence that reducing the activity of the NMDA subtype of the glutamate receptor through pharmacological action at any of three sites produces similar decrements in acquisition, and those produced through antagonism of the glycine site are differentially sensitive to the glycine-site agonist D-serine.  (+info)

B.F. Skinner (1904-1990) is often referred to as the father of operant conditioning, and his work is frequently cited in connection with this topic. His book The Behavior of Organisms,[5] published in 1938, initiated his lifelong study of operant conditioning and its application to human and animal behavior. Following the ideas of Ernst Mach, Skinner rejected Thorndikes reference to unobservable mental states such as satisfaction, building his analysis on observable behavior and its equally observable consequences.[6]. To implement his empirical approach, Skinner invented the operant conditioning chamber, or Skinner Box, in which subjects such as pigeons and rats were isolated and could be exposed to carefully controlled stimuli. Unlike Thorndikes puzzle box, this arrangement allowed the subject to make one or two simple, repeatable responses, and the rate of such responses became Skinners primary behavioral measure.[7] Another invention, the cumulative recorder, produced a graphical ...
As has been reported after lesions of the GC (Balleine and Dickinson, 2000), BLA lesions were found to produce a clear deficit in the sensitivity of instrumental performance to post-training changes in the incentive value of the instrumental outcome. The effect of GC lesions was limited, however, to choice performance assessed in an extinction test, whereas the effect of BLA lesions was observed both in extinction and in a test in which both the valued and devalued rewards were delivered contingent on instrumental performance. As such, although the effects of GC lesions appeared to be limited to the ability of rats to freely recall changes in incentive value, the current data suggest that BLA lesions affect the ability of animals to encode those changes, most likely because of a deficit in encoding the motivational significance associated with sensory features of instrumental outcomes. Thus, although the rats were able to discriminate the performance of lever pressing from chain pulling, both ...

Drug effects on operant behavior are often characterized by their effects on rate of responding, usually expressed as the number of responses per unit of time. The time between two consecutive responses constitutes an interresponse time (IRT), and this measure has been used also to characterize the effects of drugs on operant behavior. IRTs which occur during a session can be classified on a statistical basis as: 1) short-IRT, an IRT(s) of short duratio generated by high-frequency responses; 2) pause, an IRT of long duratio generated by low-frequency responses; and 3) post-reinforcement pause, an IRT which immediately follows reinforcement. This investigation used three schedules of water reinforcement (fixed-ratio 20, fixed-interval 90-seconds and variable-interval 20-seconds) to examine how these IRT classes are influenced by changes in water deprivation conditions or amphetamine administration. Base-line IRT distributions depended upon the schedule of reinforcement. Changes induced by doses ...
Five male Long-Evans rats, maintained at 80% of their free-feeding weight, were trained to bar-press for food reward on a one-minute fixed-interval (FI1) schedule of reinforcement. Once stable FI1 baseline response rates were established, dose-response functions were generated for Chlordiazepoxide HC1 (CDZ). Subsequent treatments with CDZ were followed by 30 min. pulsed microwave radiation (MWR) and FI1 behavioral assessment. Pulsed MWR exposures were in the far zone of an anechoic chamber at an averaged incident power density of 1 mW/sq cm (PRF = 300/sec, 3 usec pulse width). After 2 replications of the combined treatments another CDZ dose-response function was generated. This was followed by 3 more CDZ and MWR replications the first of which was carried out at an averaged incident power density of 1 mW/ sq cm2 Increased rates of response for the CDZ and 1 mW/sq cm MWR treatment were demonstrated relative to initial CDZ dose-response functions in 4 of 5 rats tested. However, the dose-response functions
Aplysia can readily exhibit operant conditioning of their head-waving response when bright light is used as aversive reinforcement (Cook and Carew, 1986). In the first paper of this series (Cook and Carew, 1989a), we showed that the electromyographic (EMG) activity of a discrete band of neck muscles, the lateral columellar muscles (LCMs) of Aplysia is significantly correlated with the component of head-waving (the horizontal component) that is modified during operant conditioning. In the present paper, we asked whether the EMG activity of the LCMs themselves could also be contingently modified, using the same procedures that produce operant conditioning of the behavioral response. Differential EMG from the LCMs was recorded in freely behaving animals with chronically implanted muscle cuff electrodes. Animals receiving aversive reinforcement (bright light) that was contingent upon specific patterns of LCM activity readily learned to alter their differential EMG output. Like operant conditioning ...

In the same paper they compared operant (used by Gary Whitford recently) and direct-observation methodologies (a computer pattern recognition system like I used). The following quote summarizes their comparison: Since EPA is concerned ultimately with how chronic, low-level exposure to toxic substances affects behavior, the relative sensitivity of the direct observation and operant methodologies is extremely important. A significant question is: which of the two methods can detect behavioral changes at lower levels of exposure to a given substance? Research beyond the scope of the original EPA contract would be needed to determine minimum concentrations that can be detected with the two methods. Direct observation, however, is as sensitive as operant procedures and in some cases is significantly more sensitive. At an exposure of 0.11 mg/kg of d-amphetamine, PROBE [pattern recognition of behavioral events] indicated dramatic changes in the location of the primate within the cage during the ...

Marian Breland Bailey played a major role in developing empirically validated and humane animal training methods and in promoting their widespread implementation.[14] Marian was a graduate student under B.F. Skinner. Her first husband Keller Breland also came to study with Skinner and they collaborated with him, training pigeons to guide bombs. The Brelands saw the commercial possibilities of operant training, founding Animal Behavior Enterprises (ABE). In 1955, they opened the I.Q. Zoo as both a training facility and a showcase of trained animals. They were among the first to use trained animals in television commercials, and the first to train dolphins and whales as entertainment, as well as for the navy.[14] Keller died in 1965, and in 1976 Marian married Bob Bailey, who had been director of marine mammal training for the navy. They pioneered the use of the clicker as a conditioned reinforcer for training animals at a distance.[13] ABE went on to train thousands of animals of more than 140 ...

Decision-making is a complex process influenced not only by the drive to maximize cumulative reward but also by proximate influences such as the drive to approach feeders, outcome-related cues, and choice reflex tendencies such as lose-shift and win-stay responses. These influences likely involve interactions among multiple brain circuits with unique information-processing capacities (Daw et al., 2005; Balleine and ODoherty, 2010; Gruber and McDonald, 2012). Here, we have revealed dissociations among regions of the striatum in win-stay, lose-shift, and the suppression of approach to the feeders outside of the normal task sequence (e.g. context). This latter behavior (EFS) was insensitive to reinforcements, but it strongly affected subsequent choice in the task; rats lose-shifted away from the last feeder sampled before the subsequent nose poke, regardless of whether feeder entry was from a choice within the operant task or a consequence of EFS. This is a novel mechanism by which ...

The function of a sewage treatment plant is to treat the sewage to acceptable standards before being discharged into the receiving waters. To design and operate such plants, it is necessary to measure and predict the influent flow rate. In this research, the influent flow rate of a sewage treatment plant (STP) was modelled and predicted by autoregressive integrated moving average (ARIMA), nonlinear autoregressive network (NAR) and support vector machine (SVM) regression time series algorithms. To evaluate the models accuracy, the root mean square error (RMSE) and coefficient of determination (R2 ) were calculated as initial assessment measures, while relative error (RE), peak flow criterion (PFC) and low flow criterion (LFC) were calculated as final evaluation measures to demonstrate the detailed accuracy of the selected models ...

Eighteen rats were implanted with intravenous (IV) catheters and bilateral AcbSh electrodes and subsequently underwent daily sessions in 2-lever (active/methamphetamine and inactive/no reward) operant chambers to establish IV methamphetamine self-administration. After stable responding was achieved, 3 hours of DBS or sham treatment was administered (sham: 0 µA, n = 8; active: 200 µA, n = 10) in a separate nondrug environment prior to the daily operant sessions for 5 consecutive days. Immediately following each DBS/sham treatment, rats were placed in the operant chambers to examine the effects of remote stimulation on methamphetamine intake. After the 5 days of therapy were finished, rats reestablished a posttreatment baseline, followed by extinction training, abstinence, and 1 day of relapse testing to assess methamphetamine-seeking behavior. ...
In the absence of response-reinforcer delays, AcbC-lesioned rats acquired an instrumental response normally, responding even more than sham-operated controls. In contrast, blockade of N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) glutamate receptors in the AcbC has been shown to retard instrumental learning for food under a variable-ratio-2 (VR-2) schedule [in which P(reinforcer , response) ≅ 0.5] [40], as has inhibition or over-stimulation of cyclic-adenosine-monophosphate-dependent protein kinase (protein kinase A; PKA) within the Acb [41]. Concurrent blockade of NMDA and DA D1 receptors in the AcbC synergistically prevents learning of a VR-2 schedule [42]. Once the response has been learned, subsequent performance on this schedule is not impaired by NMDA receptor blockade within the AcbC [40]. Furthermore, infusion of a PKA inhibitor [41] or a protein synthesis inhibitor [43] into the AcbC after instrumental training sessions impairs subsequent performance, implying that PKA activity and protein synthesis in ...

An Amygdala Hijack lasts around 18 minutes, but a total of around 4-5 hours to completely leave the body. So a sufferer needs to at least perceive the unpleasant sensations as discomfort for those first 18 minutes of a hijack. Once the 18 minutes have passed the sufferer may start to feel much more comfortable with the stimulus. However, if the sufferer decides to avoid the stimulus using safety behaviours the Amygdala emotional memory will be even greater the next exposure occurs. This is due to operant conditioning (reward based). By avoiding the feared stimulus the physical discomfort lessens, causing the sufferer to continue avoidance... Which only leads to a increase amygdala response the next time the feared stimulus is encountered ...

I dont know....but this vein they managed to poke the needle in couldnt given them much blood. After a SUCTION and a good 5 minutes, all they managed to get was 1 ml of blood.

Im doing some speed tests of the various methods. I can post code later if people are interested, but I thought this was slightly interesting:. 1) Two full-board buffers stored in Lua arrays as 0s and 1s and copied to the screen with pset(): 50 generations in 31 seconds. 2) Direct-to-screen using a two-line buffer: 50 generations in 29 seconds. 3) Two full-board buffers written in screen data format at 0x0000-0x1fff and 0x2000-0x3fff, using peek and poke to access the buffers and copied to the screen with memcpy: 50 generations in 57 seconds. Method #3 requires rewriting pset and pget in Lua so that I can set pixels in a non-screen portion of memory. I havent profiled these yet but my hunch is that this is a likely cause of slowness. I bet if I double the width of the cells and just peek and poke 0x00 (two blacks) and 0x77 (two whites) I could do better.. My measurement for method #2 can probably be improved by cleaning up my code to more resemble my experimental set-up in #1 and #3, and ...
