When CS and US were presented on the same side of the animal a partial inhibition resulted with a pre-exposed CS as compared to a novel CS. It was suggested that this might be produced because pre-exposure had paired the CS with an incompatible response. An attempt was made to identify this with increased extensor tonus in the leg as flexion was the CR. It was hypothesized that placing the CS and US on opposite sides of the animal would result in facilitation after pre-exposure, but, again, inhibition resulted. "The implications of latent inhibition for experiments employing latent-learning and sensory-preconditioning designs were discussed." From Psyc Abstracts 36:02:2EL15L.
