Running-based food avoidance learning in mice
One of the most impactful contributors to the empirical and theoretical analysis of associative learning, Bob Rescorla left an unparalleled legacy of elegantly designed experiments addressing fundamental questions and, with Allan Wagner, developed a model of Pavlovian conditioning that continues to inspire and shape research today. In this symposium, we honor our mentor and colleague in a series of talks illustrating implicitly or explicitly Bob’s pervasive and profound influence on what we study and how we go about it.
