A cue specifically associated with extinction reduces response recovery in human predictive learning

An experiment evaluated whether a stimulus associated with extinction can attenuate the reinstatement of a previously extinguished predictive learning relationship in humans. Participants learned a specific relationship between two cues (X and Y) and two outcomes (O1 and O2) during the first phase. Throughout extinction, both cues were presented without outcomes. Then, testing was conducted after exposure to the original outcomes. We found a reduction of the reinstatement effect when [...]
