Figure 5. The CS objects used in Experiment1 and Experiment 2. Both objects were made of blue terrycloth and filled with soft polyester fiber and consisted of a vertical section positioned in front of a horizontal mounting pad. The CS object used in Experiment 1 had a taxedermically prepared female head and partial neck mounted on top of the vertical section (a). Blue terrycloth replaced the female species typical cues on the CS object used in Experiment 2 (b).
Figure 6. Mean time spent near the conditioned stimulus during the CS period (top panel) and during the pre-CS period (bottom panel) during 25 successive conditioning trials for experimental and control subjects in Experiment 1.
Figure 7. Mean percentage of time experimental and control groups were observed near the stimulus compartment during Experiment 4. Data for trials without the toy dog are presented in blocks of two trials. Data for trials with the toy dog are presented in blocks of one trial; these single-trial blocks are identified by filled circles above the points.
Figure 11. The response profile of the sexual behavior system after conditioning. The density of the open circles (unconditioned effects) and the stars (conditioned effects) represents the degree of control of each type of stimulus over each type of response. Arrows represent conditioned modulatory influences.
