Abstract

An experiment was designed to demonstrate the latent inhibition phenomenon in adult humans and to determine the effects of initial level of attention to the to-be-conditioned stimulus during a preexposure phase on subsequent learning. Results indicate that a strong latent inhibition effect can be obtained with adult humans. This effect occurs even though the preexposed stimulus is presented under severe conditions of inattention.
