Abstract

Preshock vs no preshock was combined factorially with the presence of a 0, 78, or 96 dB 39.2 kHz tone during punishment of the water licking response of water deprived rats. Preshock treatment reliably increased the latency to the first lick following punishment, but the ultrasonic tone failed to show any effect.
