The magnitude of post reinforcement electro encephalogram synchronization in cats reflects learning ability

, : The magnitude of post reinforcement electro encephalogram synchronization in cats reflects learning ability. Brain Research 204(1): 214-219

Electrocortical alpha-like activity, termed post-reinforcement synchronization (PRS), observed during operantly conditioned behavior, was quantified in 25 cats and plotted against the number of training sessions required for each to learn to press a lever for milk reward. There was a significant correlation (r = 0.77; P < 0.001) between PRS magnitude and learning ability. The time required for learning correlated with the amount of perservation in partially reinforced, i.e., ineffective, behavioral modes.
