CS-UR Relations and
Their Implications

CS-UR Relations: Donahoe, J. W. & Vegas, R. (2004) Pavlovian Conditioning: The CS-UR Relation Journal of Experimental Psychology: Animal Behavior Processes, 30, 17-33 (detailed presentation of a series of experiments indicating that the relation between the CS and UR is the critical temporal relation in classical conditioning, and some implications of this finding for conditioning generally)

Other Implications: Implications of CS-UR relations for temporal encoding and the conditioning of behavior systems (phenomena that are important in associationism and in animal behavior, respectively)
