A new theory of learning integrates cognitive psychology and systems biology

U and IC denote the US–US interval and the CS duration, respectively. In protocol 2, the US are presented at random with equal probabilities of occurring with or without the CS, and a CR does not develop. Protocols 3 and 4 are cue competition schemes involving multiple CSs. Protocol 3 has two phases: in the …
