Abstract

Rats were allowed to self-stimulate while their responses were being recorded on tape. Subsequently, prerecorded patterns of their brain stimulation were "played back" to them. All subjects learned to escape brain stimulation delivered in exactly the same manner as they had previously elected to receive it.
