By Albert Weissman (auth.), Harbans Lal (eds.)

As one that has long past down the wayward course from "pure" natural chemistry to biochemistry to pharmacology, i used to be no longer relatively ready to head all of the method - into the sphere of discriminable stimuli. The organizer of the symposium on discriminable stimuli triggered by means of medicinal drugs, Dr. Harbans Lal, did seduce me into attending. Having misplaced my behavioral virginity, I now stare with open eyes on the box. One merchandise particularly at this assembly exemplifies to me the facility of such recommendations. Dr. Albert Weissman pointed out the matter he tackled with getting rats to discriminate among saline and dilute suggestions of aspirin. lower than usual conditions, the animals couldn't practice this activity. besides the fact that, if the animals have been sensitized through injection of prostaglan­ din into their foot pads, then they have been in a position to discriminating even very dilute ideas of aspirin. In a feeling, Al had created a version of the human arthritic who can jolly good inform when you have given him an aspirin or a salt capsule.

The other lever is made inconsequential. A possible effect of position preference is counterbalanced by randomly assigning the right lever to be the drug lever for half of the rats and the left lever to be the drug lever for the rest of the rats. For every individual rat the position (i. e. right or left) of the drug lever remains constant on subsequent sessions. In the beginning the rats receive either drug injection or a saline injection until responding is stabilized on the appropriate lever.
