Increased salt consumption in group SACCH has been interpreted here in terms of blocking: the presence of saccharine is assumed to favor the establishment of a context-illness association which then blocks the formation of a saline-illness association in the blocking trials.
As in Experiment 3, animals in group SACCH were allowed to drink saccharine in the target context and water in the non-target context, whereas animals in group WATER were allowed to drink water in the target and saccharine in the non-target contexts.
After a schedule of water deprivation had been established they were assigned to one of two groups, Group SACCH or Group WATER.
Animals in group SACCH had access to tap water whereas animals in group WATER had access to saccharine.
On the trial in which the subjects were placed in the non-target context NT, Group SACCH consumed 3.86 ml of plain water whereas subjects in group WATER consumed 3.10 ml of saccharine.
The associative chain saccharine-context-saline could only have been established in the SACCH group, thus increasing the motivational value of the saline solution (compared to the control group, in which the target context was paired with plain water).
All the animals were given two context conditioning trials: animals in group SACCH drank saccharine in the target and acid in a distinctive non-target context during the conditioning trials, whereas animals in group ACID drank acid in the target and saccharine in the non-target contexts.
After a schedule of water deprivation had been established they were assigned to one of two groups, Group ACID or Group SACCH. The two sets of cages described for the previous experiments were used.
Animals in group ACID had access to saccharine whereas animals in group SACCH had access to a citric acid solution.
On the context conditioning trial in which the subjects were placed in the non-target context NT, Group ACID consumed 4.67 ml of saccharine whereas subjects in group SACCH consumed 3.19 ml of citric acid.
An ANOVA carried out on these data with flavor (ACID vs SACCH) and day as factors showed that there was no significant effect of flavor, day, and the interaction Flavor x Day was also not significant (Maximum F(1,14)=1.61).
During the five non-reinforced test trials, rats in group ACID showed more aversion to the salted fluid than those in group SACCH. An ANOVA with flavor and day as factors showed a significant effect of flavor, F(1,14)=5.14, of day, F(4,56)=6.60, and also a significant interaction Flavor x Day, F(4,56)=5.41.
